A senior program manager, Dave Grochocki, explains,

“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. The update to the new Media Player will replace the Groove Music app.”

Inside the media player app, the user can browse and play music and also can create and manage playlists. Both in full-screen mode and the mini player option, it shows the album art and artist imagery.
