Earlier today Major Nelson of Xbox announced that alpha and beta ring Xbox Insiders and Windows insiders will have access to a new feature for shopping, the Xbox shopping cart function. Surprisingly, it’s a feature that has been requested before and now makes shopping through the online Microsoft store a breeze for multiple items.
Major Nelson announced the new Xbox shopping cart function on Twitter:
I am pleased to announce that @MicrosoftStore’s now has a shopping cart. If you are in the Xbox & Windows insider programs can begin testing the new feature today. For games and apps, simply click on the pull-down menu to the right of the “buy” button and select “add to cart” pic.twitter.com/HyxfPwPpdj

The shopping cart allows anyone buying things on the Microsoft Store to add it all up in a cart for one purchase instead of having to purchase the items separately, resulting in multiple billing statements.
Eventually this will arrive for all Xbox and Windows users, hopefully before the next big sale they have on the Microsoft store!
