Windows 10 devices & Xbox consoles to get shopping cart & wish list features

After a combination of leaks, private testing, and random public testing, Microsoft has finally made an official announcement about the new shopping cart and wish list features that are coming to the Microsoft Store on Windows 10 PCs, web, and Xbox One consoles.

Both features (see above image) work the same as most other shopping cart and wish lists online, i.e. product pages will now feature options to add an item to a shopping cart or wish list.

Xbox Insiders will gain access to the shopping cart today for testing on Xbox One consoles while Windows Insiders are expected to begin their testing in the very near future. Public users, i.e. the average user, will gain the shopping cart experience in a few weeks.

The wish list feature is expected to launch in the immediate future to everyone on Windows 10 and web while Xbox Insiders will also be able to begin their console testing at the same time. Public Xbox One users will gain access to the wish list in a few weeks.

Shopping list and wish list functionality has been a long time coming for Windows and Xbox as both are available on almost every other online shopping experience.
