A listing for an Amazon Music app has shown up in Microsoft’s Windows 10 app store. Before you get too excited though, even though the app is out, it may still be listed as “not currently available” for some. With other music services like Spotify currently available in the Microsoft Store, it’s not surprising to see even more streaming music services follow suit. There currently is a PC/Mac desktop player version but with the way Microsoft is going with UWP apps, it’s a smart move for companies to make a Microsoft Store compatible version.

The company is promising to “change the way you find and play the music you love on Windows 10” with their app description.

Sounds like the usual streaming music app functionality though with curated playlists, stations, and personalized recommendations. The app is currently listing a download size of 64.57 MB so it won’t take up all that much room once it does become available to install. In the meantime, there are also a few screenshots posted by Amazon showing what the app will potentially look like. The screenshots include tidbits like stations and even scrolling lyrics while listening to music. Take a look in the gallery below.
