Microsoft introduces AI Hub for Windows 11 app store

Microsoft has commenced testing an AI hub for its Windows 11 Insiders in the Preview Build (25905). This integrated AI hub will showcase a selection of carefully curated AI applications developed by both third-party developers and Microsoft.

The unveiling of this new hub took place at Microsoft’s Build conference in May, where the company also presented AI-generated app review summaries for the Microsoft Store. While these summaries have yet to be launched, they are expected to be displayed alongside an app’s rating, providing users with concise overviews of reviews.

Presently, the AI hub will be accessible through a dedicated tab located on the left-hand side of the Microsoft Store, positioned below the Movies & TV option. Without direct access to the preview build, it is challenging to discern the specific apps featured in the AI hub. However, based on the image shared by Microsoft, it appears that AI image-editing applications, such as Luminar Neo, may be included among other tools.

In addition, the Microsoft Store will introduce a new price-tracking feature, enabling users to monitor the recent price fluctuations of apps within the past 30 days. This functionality aims to facilitate informed decisions regarding app purchases, assisting users in determining whether to make a purchase or await a potential sale. Other updates include the long-awaited inclusion of 3D emojis promised by Microsoft two years ago, as well as a bug fix for Zune players that previously hindered driver installations for these devices.

Microsoft has announced that Windows Insiders in all channels, utilizing version 22306.1401.x.x of the Microsoft Store or newer, will have access to the AI hub and price tracker. However, the company has not provided a specific timeline for the wider release to all users.
