Media Player for Windows 11 ushered in an improved media library and playback interface

Microsoft has released a new update for the more modern Media Player app for Windows 11. Version 11.2203.30.0 is now being rolled out to Windows Insiders on the development channel, with several interface improvements and user experience tweaks. According to an article on the official Website of Windows Blogs, the latest Media Player update brings an improved Media Library user interface.


Users can now switch between two different views on the artist page. The first view lists all available albums showing the current artist, and the second view groups all songs by album in a list.

Another change is the Quick Action interface, where users can hover their cursor over albums, artists, videos, and playlists for quick selection and playback.

The latest media player version allows users to right-click the Now Playing screen to access several options, such as the ability to open a new file or go to an album or artist page. It also includes a new set of video enhancements that you can use to adjust the brightness and contrast of your videos.

Microsoft says developers are constantly improving the app so that it can better handle large music libraries. Windows 11’s new media player is still a relatively new program relative to the old components in the operating system and needs more polishing and improvement. Users can use the Feedback Hub and the app > the Media Player section to share their thoughts and opinions on the Media Player app with Microsoft.

The updated Media Player app is live with the latest Windows 11 preview, but it may still take a few days for all Windows Insiders to receive it.
