Windows 10 to support FLAC audio format

It looks like there's some good news for audiophiles in Microsoft's next Windows iteration. Teased via a tweet, it appears that Windows 10 will officially come with FLAC support for all of your lossless audio needs.

The news was teased by Gabriel Aul in a picture posted to twitter (shown above) showing FLAC files listed in Windows Media Player. It appears that the support will come via an update after the new year, with the caption stating:

Keen eyed #WindowsInsiders will notice something cool about this pic. Something to look forward to in the new year!

The teaser comes after Microsoft added support for MKV files in Windows 10 just over a month ago.
