Some Xbox Insiders have noticed a mysterious "Mercury" app appearing on their Xbox One consoles, and according to a report from Windows Central, it's the codename of a large Xbox Store update.
The website says that it believes the Xbox Store is being "rebuilt from the ground-up on new architecture, designed for 4K TVs." Apparently, the design of the app is currently very similar to the Xbox One store, with many changes appearing to be under the hood. However, Windows Central also suggests that more features and design changes could yet be implemented ahead of public testing.
Reportedly, the new store app is "destined" to be coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X and the much-rumoured Xbox Lockhart in the future. You can actually find it on the Microsoft Store right now, but it fails if you try to download it.

Mercury was the messenger of the gods, and he was FAST. 🏃🎮😏
Any improvements that made the store faster would be welcome.
I hope so. The current Xbox Store is terrible. I hope that means the Windows store will also be rebuilt to tie in with the generation change, because the Windows store is also brutal.
It's like there are several shops interconnected, if they make just one shop for PC and consoles (including Xbox One, Series X and backwards compatible games) with all the accounts and titles information it will work better.
