In November 2021, Microsoft rolled out a new Media player for users in Dev Channel. The new Media Player in Windows 11 looked beautiful and has a more clean user interface.

Furthermore, it brought many essential features that were missing earlier. Although the new Media Player is available in the Dev Channel, we have provided a step-by-step guide on how to run it on Windows 11 stable and beta builds.

The method we shared a few months ago still works today, but it’s a very lengthy process. Now it looks like the new Media Player app is now available even on the Windows 11 stable channel.

This means you can install the new Media Player in Windows 11 without participating in the test build. You even don’t need to go through any lengthy process to get the new app installed on your device.
