Can you soft launch via the Windows Phone store? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I'm just wondering if it's possible to do a soft launch via the Windows phone store, to target a single region before a full global release? Or is this done via Beta Testing?

  • You can certainly do this -- for Submission 1, just select the regions you want to soft launch to -- then you just create a new submission when you want to update the regions.  It will copy all of the previous submission's data into the new submission when you create it, so you don't even have to upload new packages.

    Note that when you create a new submission to update the regions, it will have to go through the certification process again, even if you're just updating the availability and/or metadata, keep this delay in mind when submitting the update submission.
