Microsoft is beta testing changes to the camera app and media player in Windows 11. The camera app is getting a new look based on Windows 11’s user interface, and the media player is also getting support for CD ripping. Both updated apps should be rolling out now to Dev Channel Windows Insiders.

The updated camera app comes in at version 2022.2206.2.0. In addition to the visual redesign, it also has a new ability to scan a QR code or scan a barcode. Meanwhile, media player is getting updated to version 11.2206.30.0. This update brings support for CD ripping as well. Supported formats include AAC, WMA, FLAC, and ALAC. Check images out of these news apps below.

Other than these two apps, Microsoft is rolling out native ARM64 support to the Movies & TV app. Finally, Microsoft is migrating video file type associations from Movies & TV to Media Player. This migration will only impact file types that are already associated with Movies & TV and only after you open Movies & TV for the first time.
