Back in April, Microsoft turned on the Movies & TV page in the Windows Store Beta. Today, Microsoft is turning on the Music page in the Store Beta. If you’re running the latest Windows Build 10130 and version 3.6.1068.0 of the Music app, you can go to the Music page in the Store Beta and browse new albums and top songs, browse for music by genre, and purchase music you want to own. Music is now available to purchase in the US, Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
If you have an Xbox Music Pass – you can still add music to your collection directly within the Music app. But to purchase songs and albums – you will do this via the Store Beta. Please note that the experience you will see today is unfinished and we have a lot more work to do. For example, purchased music won’t download automatically so you’ll have to launch the Music app to do that.
The new music and video experiences are now the default in the Windows 10 Insider Preview and the preview versions will be removed in future builds.
