Microsoft said, once iTunes is released to the Windows Store, users will get the complete iTunes experience with iPhone syncing, Software Updates, Apple Music and more.
It was later announced that Spotify will also be making its appearance in the Windows Store.
As of now, there is no news of an exact release date, as per the Microsoft’s announcement, iTunes and Spotify should be available in the Windows Store by the end of this year.
This is a result of the ongoing quest by Microsoft to bring more and more applications to the Windows Store hoping to improve the diversity of applications which are available in the Windows Store.
