Microsoft has been previewing some updates to its music and video apps for Windows 10 recently, but it looks like bigger changes are on the way. The software giant has revealed a new look and feel for what appears to be an upcoming release of the music app for Windows 10. A screenshot posted on Microsoft's support site shows a dark-themed app that looks very similar to Spotify.

While the existing music preview app for Windows 10 doesn't have many huge changes from the Windows 8 version, this updated preview includes recent tracks on the side and an improved hamburger menu on the left. The overall theme is black, compared to the white version that Microsoft is currently previewing. Microsoft may have dropped the Xbox branding from its Music and Video apps for Windows 10, but this upcoming release also looks very similar to the Xbox app for Windows 10. Microsoft continues to tweak the user interface of Windows 10, with black and white themes expected to be the primary color options once the operating system is released this summer.
