Microsoft Allows Developers to Report Spam Reviews on Windows Store
Microsoft is currently working towards improving the Windows Store, and as part of its effort, the company has added new tools that allow developers to report spammy user reviews.
The Windows Store has a fair share of questionable, or otherwise “useless” reviews, that add little to no value to the conversation. To help control the spam, the Redmond company revealed today that it has added new improvements to the Windows Store.
Now, developers and other reviewers can report spam reviews. A support representative will then remove the offending reviews if determined violating store policies. In addition, the software giant has also implemented a new anti-spam technology that can “detect and remove a large majority of the spam reviews.”
Hopefully, the tools will have a significant effect in reducing the spam cluttering the Store, making reviews a lot more helpful and informative for customers who want to give the app a shot.
