Windows 8 music player screenshots leak

App will play music & give access to Windows Store

Windows 8 will include an integrated music player. Screenshots leaked by Winunleaked have provided a preview of the UI. The player isn't as advanced as a dedicated app like Windows Media Player but could be pervasive in the OS, sitting docked next to other Metro apps.

The music player will provide access to music from a folder, device or other possible locations. It will also offer access to music through Microsoft's Windows Store, which was announced in September. When a song is being played, the mini-app will show music's title, date and record label. Listeners can create and save a listening queue, repeat a song, or listen to songs in a random shuffle. They can also pin their favorite song to their start screen.

Windows 8 is expected to get its first public release in February with public beta builds, with a finished version in the second half of the year.
