    Our beloved Windows Phone developers at Microsoft just made an update available for Games Hub. The latest update brings back the recent games list in Games Hub. Great right. Except they, in all their brilliancy, made it such that Games Hub itself is not visible in App list.

    I am not sure whether it is a Misinterpretation of the User Voice or their plan itself is to remove the games hub completely. Either way, anybody who are planning to update the Games Hub make sure you have Games Hub pinned to start. Otherwise it is not possible to pin it back. As you all know you cannot uninstall or downgrade the Games Hub.

    And I cannot even see it in Storage Sense!!!

    However if you have already updated and don't have it pinned in the start, there are some workarounds:
    1. Transparency Tiles (and probably other similar apps) can pin your Games Hub link to the start menu.
    2. You can use Cortana and say "open games" to open the Games Hub.

    Wow what a brilliant update by MS. All the games still present in the app list and the Games Hub removed. Exactly the opposite of what all the users wanted. Way to go MS !!
    Luckily I always had the games hub pinned to my start screen.
