Windows Phone Xbox Music Update 8/8/2014


Microsoft released a smallish update to the Windows Phone Xbox Music app today. Here’s a list of what’s included, straight from the horse’s mouth:

It’s easier than ever to start playback of your favorite tunes via our new Recent Plays feature!

  • You can let your kids play music worry free, now that we’ve added support for music in Kid’s Corner! *Requires Update 1*
  • It’s noticeably faster to launch & navigate about the app, particularly the songs, artists, and albums pages
  • We also fixed several significant bugs, with a focus on:
  • Album art & metadata reliability (more to come here!)
  • Unexpected app exits & some black screens
  • Playlists now shuffle from everywhere (not just first 100)

Future updates are hinted, to include some other much-wanted improvements:

  • Live Tile support
  • Performance improvements
  • General UX improvements

Go grab it now!
