How to use Wish List and Shopping Cart in Microsoft Store

With Windows 10, Microsoft aimed to build an operating system that shared a core that would let the user experience the same type of features across their different Windows devices at the almost similar time. This means that with the power of UWP if a feature is shipped to be targeted to a particular device, it becomes easy for the developer to make it available for another device like the Xbox. Similarly, Microsoft recently introduced a bunch of new features called Wish List and Shopping Cart for the Microsoft Store. This feature is available for the computer but as of now only available to Xbox Insiders so, you can expect this to roll out to them as well.
