    Welcome to Windows EightForums, abhijaya.

    8 is a pretty-much-stripped-down OS. There is a few in the store.

    I do believe that app is installed by default, and should already be in your Metro Start Screen. If its not its in the Music and Video section of the App Store as a free download.
