Microsoft accidentally teases new Media Player for Windows 11

Windows 11 Media Player

Playing the media content in Windows 11 could soon be even
easier as the software giant is reportedly working on a new app
called “Media Player”. Microsoft appears to be working on a new
“Media Player” or replacement for the Movies & TV app, and this
will soon hit the devices running Windows 11 preview builds.

Windows 11 has an impressive collection of redesigned apps
available to try and Microsoft is apparently working on a WinUI
2.6 refresh for media apps like Movies & TV app and Groove
Music.

During the Windows Insider webcast,
Microsoft accidentally shared a screenshot of an unreleased app
titled “Media Player”. It’s possible that this would be the new
name of the Movies & TV app, which was last updated with
Windows 10 Creators Update and Fall Creators Update.

Media player

Unlike the Movies & TV app, Media Player comes with a few new
options, including the ability to change the track or shuffle
the media playlist. With this update, users will easily be able
to navigate between the videos in the library and will also
help boost productivity as it seems to feature integration with
the Photos app.

At the moment, it’s possible that the “Media Player” name is a
placeholder and Microsoft will retain the Movies & TV app
branding.

Other apps coming to Windows 11

As we mentioned at the outset, Microsoft wants to modernize the
user experience of all native apps for Windows 11.

For example, the Clock app is getting a big overhaul and
Spotify integration. As part of the design overhaul, Windows
11’s new Clock app can help you stay focused and complete the
task you’re currently working on.

The
feature is called “Focus Sessions” and it’s built into the
Clock app. It comes with Microsoft To Do integration and
you’ll be able to create a Focus Timer, and listen to
Spotify’s playlist in the background as the timer counts down.
Spotify integration is offered free.

While the Clock app has been released for testers, it is not
yet clear as to when the new Media Player will be announced for
Windows 11.
