Last November, Microsoft released a new version of Windows Media Player to its Insider program members to preview its Media Player within the Windows Insider Developer Channel.
At that time, Microsoft decided to launch a newer version of its media player, Groove Music, with another native media player installed on Windows 11.
But Mountain View seems to have changed its plan. People at Reddit have actually pointed out that Groove Music is no longer accessible and has been replaced by the new Windows Media Player.
The good news is, this new version of Microsoft’s multimedia player can be installed on the standard version of Windows starting today. Here’s how.
