Music is something we all tend to love, and it doesn’t matter where you’re from, music is for everyone. That is why folks should be excited about the coming of a popular music player to the Windows Store.

The player in question is no other than “foobar2000” and it is one of those media players that can play almost anything. Want to playback MP3, M4A, FLAC, MusePack, WavPack, Ogg Vorbis, and Opus files? Worry not, foobar2000 has got you covered here, and everything will go as smooth as possible.

It is even possible to tune into UPnP servers in order to listen to live broadcasts from anywhere around the world. It’s a solid media player so to see it come to Windows 10 makes us very excited.

This version is not complete, it is in preview so users should expect several bugs and possible issues relating to playing back content. So far however, we have yet to come across any major issues since using the app for days. Music content played back smoothly as we bop our head to some cool tunes.

Ever listened to Catfish and the Bottlemen’s album, Balcony? Grab foobar2000 and give it a spin. Also, you might be interested in checking out some of the best audio recording software for Windows 10.

The one problem we had when using the app, is its user interface. It could have been much better than it is right now. We’re guessing since it is in preview, the developers must be working on something better because this is terrible.

Additionally, to get to some places in the app, it requires too many clicks. We’ve always had these weird problems with apps from the Windows Store, so we’re hoping with future updates to the platform, developers can actually design better apps that work similar to x86 apps.
