They showed it in WIPCast which is private now. They also showcased by using Paint app and Media Player.
Why did they mark it private? I wanted to watch it? Was some "revealing" info in there about future builds?
Since they're Store apps i hope this means we won't have to wait a whole year for these
App Updates aren't related to windows updates. So, it can come at any time through Microsoft store.
Will we get a modern Windows Media Player equivalent?
I sure hope so. Really wish it would also have visualisations, like the scope and simple bars. Apps nowadays have gotten too boring and unanimated.
This may be it, hopefully.
I know right? I loved the looks of the media player in Win XP 64bit media center edition
Also themes support
It feels like they replaced the old windows meda player ?!!
Wait, a universal media player? Is it finally coming back? I have to try it out once it's finally released. And no I'm not gonna ditch iTunes, I own an iPod that I still use as my daily driver.
As an old-folk weirdo with a Zune HD back in the day, I felt the same attachment to the Zune Software and I'm still nostalgic when I see it. <3
if true, they finally fix the bug regarding title bar min\max\closed being a solid color... after what 4-5 years.
When will these ever reach the dev channel? It's been well over a month since Panos Panay teased the new paint app and it still hasn't been rolled out.
I'm sick of these weekly filler "updates" with no new features - just minor fixes and more bugs than before.
We don't have any news regarding this. Either they intentionally showed it or it was accidentally shown but it should be announced soon. Probably it is still in development
Yup. Definitely, our old pal WMP just got revised. It's really nice to see another favorite app is coming back in this era.
It just looks like Groove player with a video playing.
One issue is when they make everything white so it's blindingly bright. I get this when using WordPress.
WMP is back boys!!!
Oh god! Could it be? Could the prayers of the Windows fanbase finally be heard of the WinGod???
A modern Media Player replacing Windows Media Player??? And the shitty Movies + TV and Groove Apps???
About fucking time LOL
Ha. Fun to think about. We'll see...
If it could stream my owned tracks from Onedrive, that would be helpful. (I don't like opening up Onedrive to other music services, so instituted work arounds. It works, but this would be better. )
I use Audirvana Studio for my Hi-res audio library and VLC for playing my Remux library of Movies. UWP apps suck there's no drag and drop on Grove or Movies besides they are very basic apps.
