Windows 10 SDK and Dev Center opens today for Developers

Last updated:

Microsoft today launched Windows 10 in over 190 markets and are now providing developers the tools they need to submit Universal Windows Platform apps and games to a single unified Windows Store.

Later today the Windows 10 SDK with go-live license will be available and the Dev Center will open to accept Windows 10 app submissions – both for new and updated apps and games.

The Windows 10 Store is designed to provide a single platform for delivering the full range of apps, games, software and services to the many types of devices that people rely on today – PC, tablet, phone and soon IoT, console and holographic.

In addition to the new unified storefront, Microsoft are now opening the unified Windows Dev Center to create a single end-to-end developer experience across all Windows device types.

Microsoft stated today,

“The final stage of that Dev Center unification was to provide a single app submission flow and dashboard. Over the last few weeks we’ve achieved that goal, migrating existing developer accounts and opening traffic to new developers. As part of the unification, we’re bringing popular features to the entire developer community, including ‘Respond to reviews’ which was previously only available for Windows Phone. And, we’ve added a few capabilities to help the developer community get ready for future updates, including the ability to make the apps you submit today eligible for distribution to organizations when that storefront is available later this year. “

In the coming weeks Microsoft will be rolling out the Microsoft Universal Ad Client SDK with support for video interstitials and Windows ad mediation, and over the next few months we’ll bring additional updates to the Store and developer platform adding bridges, subscriptions, a new storefront for businesses and organizations and much more.

Universal Windows Platform that spans Windows 10 devices and bridges that enable developers to reuse code from other platforms to bring apps to Windows 10.

Today on Windows 10 Microsoft offer traditional debit and credit card options as well as PayPal, Alipay, app gifting, gift cards and Bitcoin (US only). Later this year they will enable PC and tablet customers to pay via their phone bill with carrier billing, currently only available for Windows Phone customers.
