Microsoft is gearing up to showcase a brand new Xbox store for consoles in the near future, dubbed codename "Mercury."

@WinCommunity over on Twitter managed to get a look at the new Xbox Store app first, showcasing the awesome fluent design and refreshed iconography to match apps like those found on PC and Project xCloud.

Now, we've been able to go hands-on with the app for ourselves, getting a deeper idea of where Microsoft is planning to take Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles with their designs in the future.

The app takes solid cues from the Xbox (Beta) app and new Xbox Game Bar on PC, with rounded corners, a new, bolder font, and tons of acrylic blur.

It even extends to Microsoft's Movies TV store, as well as the app store specifically for Xbox.
