Microsoft has released the new Windows 11 Media Player to Windows insiders in Dev channel. The new Media Player comes with redesigned UI complimenting Windows 11 and new user experience.
Windows 11 Media Player showcases both local music and video collections and it replaces the Groove Music app. Check all the details provided by Microsoft below.
At the heart of Media Player is a full-featured music library that allows you to quickly browse and play music, as well as create and manage playlists. If your music collection is in Groove Music today, your library and playlists will automatically migrate to this new experience. The update to the new Media Player will replace the Groove Music app.
The dedicated playback view features album art and rich artist imagery; these will appear in the full screen and mini player experiences as well.
Media Player includes full support for browsing, managing, and watching your local video collection too! All your content in the music and video folders on your PC will appear automatically in your library, but you can also tell Media Player where to look for additional content in app settings. We have also optimized for accessibility, with improved keyboard shortcut and access key support for keyboard users and with other assistive technologies.
