Hey, remember that Windows 11 media player app that leaked in September? Well, you can test it now if you’re in the Dev channel.
“Today we are beginning to roll out the new Media Player for Windows 11 to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel,” Microsoft writes in the announcement post. “We designed the new Media Player to make listening to and watching your multimedia content more enjoyable on Windows 11.”
The new Media Player app is limited to playing local music and video content and, as you might expect, it will eventually replace the Groove app. In fact, it looks very much like the Groove app, though that app was limited to working just with music content.
(Which begs the question: does this mean Movies & TV is going away too?)
Oddly, Microsoft says it will continue to include the legacy Windows Media Player application in Windows 11.
