From December 22nd through January 1st, the Windows Store team will have fewer staff on-hand, as team members spend the holidays with their families. We’ll continue to review and certify your apps during this time—it will just take a little longer.
If you’re hoping to get your app certified and in the Store before the holidays, we recommend you submit your app right away. And if you have non-essential updates that you’d like to make, consider holding off until after January 1st.
On behalf of all of us working on the Windows Store, we hope you have a great holiday season. We look forward to your continued success in the coming year!
