Microsoft has announced a new widget store for the Xbox Game Bar for Windows 10, and also shared information about partners. Now any developer can create new custom widgets. The company is constantly working to improve the game panel, so it is likely that in the near future it will become more popular among users.
In order to access the new widget store, users need to join the Xbox Game Bar testing through the special application “Xbox Pre-Assessment Center”.

It is worth saying that this is a big step in the development of the Xbox Game Bar. Now users can go to the application store to find and download their favorite widgets. In addition, XSplit and Razer will release their widgets to support the updated game panel.
