While we already knew that Windows 10 would be bringing native access to lossless audio in the form of FLAC support, Microsoft's Joe Belfiore took to Twitter today to confirm that support for FLAC files will come to Windows Phones as well.

Belfiore says:

"Yes, FLAC support will be on phones/small tablets... won't be in the first insider build, though, will be a few months later.."

The addition of native FLAC support in Windows 10 for both desktops and phones is great news for audiophiles who have historically had to rely on outside codecs or programs, such as VLC, to play the files on their machines.

Thanks, Yahia, for the tip!
