Windows 11 Gets a New Media Player App to Replace Groove Music and Windows Media Player

Jun. 16, 2022 / Updated by Vivi to Windows 11

Recently, Microsoft has released a new Media Player app to replace the Groove Music and Windows Media Player in Windows 11. This new app supports both audio and video, and its new design improves the UI improvements of Windows 11. At present, it is only available for Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.

Now users are still able to use the original Windows Media Player in Windows Tools on Windows 11. As for when Windows Media Player will disappear in Windows 11, Microsoft hasn’t given any statement.

According to Dave Grochocki from Microsoft, there’s a full-featured music library located at the heart of the new Media Player. This library enables users to quickly browse and play music, create and manage playlists. During Playback, users can see album art and artist imagery in both full screen and mini-player modes. In addition, all the content in the music and video folders on the PC will automatically appear in the library, but users are able to locate additional content in the app setting of the new Media Player.
