Microsoft has applied a new color to one of its oldest virtual operating systems: Windows Media Player. This program, now called "Media Player" in Windows 11, is currently in development for Windows Insiders on the channel.
There is no shortage of potential better third-party alternatives to Windows Media Player, but the latter still holds a special place in the hearts of many Windows fans who have grown up watching and listening to content.. in the media program By default, Microsoft took it out of the spotlight in Windows 10 and buried WMP in the menus as it aggressively replaced its first-person alternatives, Groove Music, and Movies and TV shows that came with Windows 8 on the platform.
However, it now appears that Media Player is ready to make a comeback, as Microsoft has given it a design for Windows 11 and released the program for Windows Insiders in the developer channel. p>
While covering many cases. With the same features and functionality as the old WMP, the new software comes with a smoother interface, and Microsoft takes advantage of rich albums and artist photos in full screen modes and a mini player. p>
Additionally. For popular features like creating/managing playlists and browsing local music and videos, the app comes with keyboard shortcuts optimized for access.

Waiting for some bugs and issues to be in the app, because Microsoft is currently testing it with Windows Insiders. There is no word on whether Windows 10 users will receive the app in a future update. It seems unlikely, given that the operating system is now in its end-of-life cycle and will see fewer feature updates in the future. p>
