Do you guys remember the newly redesigned Media Player that was introduced to the Windows 11 operating system?

Well, you will be pleasantly surprised to find out that Microsoft has decided to share the revamped Media Player with Windows 10 users as well.

So. if you haven’t yet upgraded to Windows 11 and decided to stick with its predecessor a little longer, this is a neat treat from Microsoft,

Windows 10 users are getting the new Media Player as well

As you remember, Microsoft began rolling out its new, redesigned Media Player to Windows 11 Insiders back in November 2021.

The Redmond tech company has since been gradually updating it with new interesting and helpful features like Audio CD Ripping, and more high-fidelity audio file formats.

And, there are also features that video watchers will like, such as video folder navigation, which was also added recently.

Meanwhile, on Windows 10, Groove Music has been the default music-playing app, but this too is about to come to an end, just like MSDT.

Why? Well, it looks like that is set to change as Microsoft is now starting to replace Groove Music on Windows 10 with the new Windows Media Player.

Keep in mind that the development is not entirely new though and it was probably coming to all users sooner or later.

That is because the Redmond firm had already begun rolling out the new Media Player to Windows 10 Release Preview channel Insiders.

Judging from user reports, the new Media Player is now starting to become available on the Microsoft Store which means all Windows 10 users should soon be able to use it.

That being said, you may not receive the new Windows Media Player right away on Windows 10 via the Microsoft Store as it is likely going to be a general rollout.
