iTunes is making its way into the Windows Store

Microsoft has announced that iTunes is making its way into the Windows Store.

The announcement came this week during a Build developer event. The addition of iTunes is a major coup for Microsoft, who revealed it has been working with Apple to make the app available to its users of Windows Store. It’s one of the most searched apps that’s currently not available in the store.

iTunes was already available through web download for Windows 10 users, but Microsoft’s newest Windows 10 S uses apps only available on Windows Store. This severely limits the number of apps users can access.

Apple has incorporated every branch of its music, television and movie service into iTunes, including Apple Music. This will facilitate the marriage of iPhones and Windows PC users. Microsoft didn’t reveal an exact date when iTunes would be available to download in the Windows Store.

Maybe more apps will follow soon

With Microsoft’s focus on its Windows Store, this addition will hopefully pave the way for more popular apps like Google Chrome to arrive on the service, which is still not in the Windows Store.
