[UWP]Publishing Windows 10 App Package for Test Users | Windows Store


  • Hi,

    I have separate packages for Windows Phone 7.1, Windows Phone 8.0, 8.1 and Desktop Windows 8.0. I want to upload my new package for Windows 10 Universal app in hidden mode internally for my test users only without hiding my old packages. 

    According to documentation, we can submit our package in hidden mode which will not be available in search and browse in Windows store app's listing. But it will create following problems

    1. It will hide my existing packages which should be available in older version of OS.

    2. Users already having link of my app would be able to update their existing app.

    3. Users can find my app through google search engine and get navigated to my app in windows store.

    These problems comes even if the app is published in hidden mode and not available in search and browse of Windows store.

    Earlier Beta concept is also not available in  newer version of app store.

    Please Help!
