This week is a big one for Windows Media Player 11. The new release is part of Windows Vista, but Windows XP users won’t be missing out—in fact, they’ll get an early look at some of the features in the player, maybe as soon as Wednesday, May 17!
WMP 11 in Windows Vista builds on the “media everywhere” idea—you can customize your media experience, getting just what you want when (and where) you want it, and enjoy continual access to high-quality music, video, photos, and more—all over the house or office! You’ll be able to find the tunes you want fast because of optimized search features; click on album cover thumbnails (this is a very cool feature) to recognize and choose the items you want; and set up a massive media library that you can sort, manage, and play whether you’re working, entertaining, relaxing, or all of the above.

WMP 11 is also rolling out a major new subscription service for die-hard music fans. URGE, MTV’s, music subscription service which launched earlier this week, is tightly integrated with WMP 11, but music lovers currently using MSN Music and Napster can continue downloading tunes with those services if they choose.
