Windows 10 to get FLAC support

Windows 10 logoFor audiophiles, listening to music in the MP3 format is pretty much unheard of as the MP3 format tends to compress audio, thus resulting in a drop in quality. Most of us might not be able to tell the difference in audio quality, but to some users who might have a keener sense of hearing or better quality audio equipment, the difference is apparently like night and day.

That being said, one of the preferred formats of audiophiles is the FLAC format and the good news is that if you’re a Windows user looking to make the upgrade to Windows 10 upon its release in 2015, it looks like the operating system will be coming with native support for the FLAC format.

This was teased by Gabriel Aul (via WMPowerUser) on Twitter who posted the screenshot above, showing off Windows Media Player supporting the FLAC format. The good news is that the support reportedly will extend beyond Windows Media Player and will apply to any Modern app that uses the built-in codec support.

Windows 10 to get FLAC support

While we wouldn’t exactly call this a “killer feature”, it is no doubt one that will be welcome by audiophiles, unless of course they already have their own preferred application to playback the FLAC format, but in any case is the native support for FLAC something that you guys have been looking forward to?
