When Microsoft revealed its plans last year to bring Apple’s iTunes to the Microsoft Store, the news was received with much excitement, but the tech giant didn’t deliver its promise to avail the app by the end of 2017. In the surprise announcement, which was made early last year at Microsoft’s Build conference, the firm revealed that it had been working with Apple to have its iTunes app listed in Windows Store.

iTunes is one of the most searched for apps, but it was missing from the Windows Store. However, by the end of last year, the plan hadn’t materialized.

Install iTunes on Windows 10

Finally, iTunes is now coming to the Windows 10 app store, available in both online and desktop versions, though the updates will be availed through the Microsoft Store. This is a huge boost to the firm’s efforts with regards to its Windows 10 S Mode, which only supports apps that are available in the Store.

To this end, Windows 10 users will get access to Apple Music courtesy of the iTunes app, with the ability to listen to millions of songs on the Apple Music streaming service, including their own music libraries whether they’re online or offline – all ad-free. They also get to buy music, TV shows, as well as their favorite films.

Additionally, users will get the latest music first, listen to radio in every genre of music, handpick playlists, and Beats 1 live, or on demand. Notably, when you install the latest iTunes version, it automatically replaces the version you have been using on your own computer. This means you need to back up all your data prior to installing the update, then install the app on your internal hard drive.

Grab the iTunes app from the Microsoft Store today!
