Upgraded to Universal App. What happens in the Windows App store to old app?


  • I have upgraded my Windows app to a Universal App. What happens to the old 8.1 app when I publish? Will 8.1 Windows OS users still be able to see the old app in the store? I am assuming I do new screen captures for the new app. Do those replace the screen captures for the old app as well? Supposed a user is using the 8.1 app and they find a bug. Can I fix and publish bug fixes for the old app?

  • Its Simple.

    Lets say you are developed for WP8. Now you are porting same app to WP10. Now you will will uploading these tow builds in MarketPlace.

    Its microsoft responsibility to make WP10 app visible for all the WP10 device and WP8 app visible in WP8 and WP8.1 device. Microsoft will take care of that.
