Ever since Microsoft added the widget feature to Windows 10, there have been rumors that Microsoft plans to open up third-party widget features, and the feature was also mentioned in the message about the Win11 2022 update.
Today, whistleblower FireCube posted a message on social media,It is said that in the latest widget list, information about the functions of the widget was found.
Judging from the screenshots released, Microsoft will allow developers to upload their own widgets directly in the Microsoft Store.This means that users will be able to download third-party widgets in the store as if they were an app.
Currently, Win11's widget feature only adds a basic first-party widget that allows users to view the weather, browse calendars and to-dos, or view stock trends, but there's no more.
And the addition of third-party widgets,It will effectively help this function to get out of the current chicken rib dilemma.
However, it should be noted that according to the previously exposed news,Widgets need to be developed on the web, not native Win32 or UWPAlthough this will reduce the difficulty of developing the widget, offline use becomes a problem.
