You will soon be able to download Fonts from Microsoft Store


With the next major update of Windows 10 aka Redstone 4, Microsoft to bring many new features and enhancement in Cortana, Microsoft Edge, Fluent Design element and more.

While ago we heard that Microsoft to bring the language pack to the Windows Store. Meanwhile we are also hearing that Microsoft may soon allow users to download and install fonts from Microsoft Store too. So that means you don’t have to download and install font files from internet; you can now directly install fonts from Microsoft store.

Even Microsoft listed the Arial Nova font family in Store. If you are Windows Insider in the Fast Ring running 17040 or above build you can download and install that font on your device. In case if you don’t know Arial Nova s a subtle redesign of the classic Arial family and most preferable for document paragraphs and headings. You can get it from here via Microsoft Store.

And you can see that font is listed for both Windows 10 Mobile and PC users and is a UWP app which could well be working with HoloLens and Surface Hub also. Some user’s reported that they are unable to install it. This is still at on experimental stage company might soon allow user to download and install it.

However, at this moment we are not so sure whether or not Microsoft will allow third-party developer/designer to upload their font to Microsoft Store. If they allow there might be some legal terms and conditions in order to sell fonts on Microsoft Store. We will soon hear more information about it from company in upcoming months or two.

Language packs and Fonts in Microsoft Store must be serious move from company, but we would like to see Microsoft Edge, MyPeople in Store. Because in order to update them they have to roll out update for whole Operating System.
