Microsoft working on a UWP version of Windows defender

Windows defender is an Antivirus that ships with Windows 8 and windows 10. Microsoft says that you do not need an antivirus if you use either of the OS. However, in earlier windows versions like 7 and 8, Windows defender acts as an Anti-malware, but not an Antivirus.
Personally I feel Windows defender is enough as an AV for home users, as it is lightweight and does not hog up any resources.
The UI of Windows defender is same from ages, it is same from ages or either when it was introduced. However, with the Anniversary update to Windows 10, Microsoft did add some most essential features in windows defender, like an Scanning even when a 3rd party AV is Installed, adding a context menu in files and folders etc.
