Disney built a true Windows UWP Disney+ app just before the launch of Windows 11, available in the Microsoft Store now

Disney launched their Disney+ Windows UWP app on Xbox a few years ago and we even guided you through the process of installing Xbox apps like Disney+ on your Windows 10 PCs and while the experience of using an Xbox app on a PC wasn’t great, it got the job done. Today Aggiornameti Lumia spotted that Disney finally launched a PC optimized version of their Xbox UWP app and is available in the Microsoft Store for both Windows 11 and Windows 10 PCs.

The new Disney+ app is a native UWP XAML with WinUI 2.6 like the Xbox app, making it a welcome addition for Windows PCs owners who are also Disney+ subscribers, delivering an Apple-like level of quality to the native app experience. It offers a good touch experience along with offering an optimized mouse and keyboard experience. Unfortunately, there is no native ARM support but on Windows 11 the 64-bit app is support with emulation. You can download and install the Disney+ app directly from Microsoft here.
