Microsoft UWP experts,

What are the update options available for an UWP app available in microsoft store for public? If a user installs a version say v1.0 , if v2.0 is available in microsoft store , will he notified that a version is available? What are the ways available for the users for notification and installing the update when the new version of app is in store and public?

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Just talk from the Store side. Users will not be notified about the app updates. If the user has enabled the App updates option in the Microsoft Store, then the system will auto update your app when your update is available.

    Thank you.
