Microsoft continues adding new AI-powered features and capabilities to its apps and services. This year, Microsoft supercharged Bing, SwiftKey, Edge, and Skype with AI, and now it is time for the Microsoft Store to get a taste of artificial intelligence. During its annual developer conference, the software giant announced several new Microsoft Store AI-based features.

Microsoft says its Windows 10 and 11 app store is no longer just a place to download an app or game—it should serve as a "resource to educate customers about how they can be more productive, achieve their tasks, and discover new content." To achieve this noble goal, Microsoft has prepared a dedicated AI Hub and AI-powered features, such as review summaries and automatic keyword generation.

Microsoft Store AI Hub with the best AI-powered Windows apps

Microsoft Store AI Hub is a new curated store section where Microsoft highlights "the best AI experiences build by the developer community and Microsoft." In other words, customers will be able to discover AI-powered applications and their capabilities, such as Luminar Neo and Lensa, Descript, Krisp, Podcastle, Gamma, Copy.ai, Tripnotes, and more.

AI-generated review summaries

AI-generated review summaries will help Microsoft Store visitors better understand what others think about a specific app or game without scrolling through hundreds of reviews. The store will summarize reviews in short, concise highlights containing the topline details.

Reviews suggest that Phone Link is a must-have app for increasing productivity and multitasking. Users appreciate the convenience of being able to view and respond to texts from their PC in real time, use iMessage from Windows 11, manage photos. and send messages from a PC. The app is easy to use and provides helpful design features for making calls and messaging.

AI-generated keywords for better discoverability

AI-generated keywords are a new tool that leverages the power of artificial intelligence to help developers generate appropriate and precise keywords for their store listings. Microsoft will analyze and process metadata and other signals to improve discoverability in the search results.
