On Windows 11, you can now download and install the first public preview of the Apple Music app.
The app offers the same design and features already found on macOS, including unlimited access to millions of songs and your music library. However, since this is a preview not all features may work as expected. After installing the Music app, the iTunes app will no longer open, and audiobooks or podcasts on your computer will be inaccessible until Apple releases a compatible version of iTunes.
If you want to revert back to iTunes, you will have to uninstall this version of the Apple Music app. Also, to sync media to Apple devices you will need to install the Apple Devices app.
This guide will walk you through the steps to try out the preview of the Apple Music app for Windows 11.
