After months of delays and setbacks, the iTunes app has finally made its way into the Microsoft Store to the excitement of many users. The new app is only available for Windows 10 machines, with either x86 or x64 architectures and you will need around 500MB of disk space for the installation. In case you’ve been living under a rock, iTunes is one of the easiest ways to view the best movies and TV shows, along with it carrying the Spotify contender Apple Music, where you can stream and listen to millions of songs on or offline. All this and ad-free, you also get Beats 1 live or on demand, along with handpicked playlists and radio stations for every genre out there.
The app is a straight port of the existing desktop software, but packaged in a way that enables its distribution from the Microsoft Store. This means the old desktop unfortunately won’t update to the new app automatically, instead the installer will offer to remove the legacy version for you. Your existing music library will not be affected by this. We still have to wait for the Google Play app to join the Microsoft Store, as there are no immediate plans for this since the time Google sneakily added a Chrome installer to the store, which Microsoft removed immediately citing security issues.
