iTunes is a program that allows you to watch videos and listen to audio files and download content from the iTunes store. It can even manage of your iOS devices. The newest version of iTunes has been redesigned in order to make things easier and more efficient.

The popular iCloud now has better integration on the newest version of iTunes. Every track that you have bought from the iTunes store will show up in your library whether you have downloaded the file or not. All you have to do is click on the album to download it to your computer. However, you do not need to download the track to listen to it, as you can stream any file directly from the cloud.

The iTunes store has also been redesigned, and it shows featured content at the top of the list. The lists are easier to browse, making it easy to find the tracks you are looking for. The store will also have suggested tracks based on the content that you already have in your music library. However, iTunes still doesn't offer a streaming service.

The layout is easier, and the default album view takes up the entire window. The bar on the left has been removed, as most users did not use that feature in previous editions. Browsing through your music is easy, and iTunes also creates a colored background that is unique to each album.

The new iTunes software also allows you to add songs to a queue so that you can listen to the songs that you want without needing to create playlists. This new feature is called Up Next, and you can add whatever songs you would like in any order.

Creating a playlist is easier with the new version of iTunes. You no longer have to navigate between the playlist and your entire library of music. There is a panel that shows up on the right that will allow you to add songs and change your playlists without moving from one page to another.

The mini player has also been redesigned, making it easier to navigate between the tracks that you are playing. You will also be able to modify your Up Next queue from the mini player and a search box so that you can search your library for specific songs to play. Your iOS devices now show up as a button at the top of the software, and you can click on it to go to the page where you can manage your device.

iTunes makes it simple to manage all of your tracks and movies across all of your devices. The software is now much easier to comprehend and is one of the best media players available.
