Microsoft Band app update fixes Live Tile issues

Microsoft recently pushed a new update for its Microsoft Band app, previously known as Microsoft Health, for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10. The main highlight of this update is a fix that solves the problem with Microsoft Band Live Tile on the Home Screen.

Microsoft Band is not the most stable Windows 10 app. Therefore, Microsoft has been releasing various patches for the app, instead of delivering new features. However, one of those updates actually caused a problem with Live Tiles. Namely, the Live Tile didn’t showing users’ data correctly, and the animation was messed up, as well. The new update also made Microsoft Band’s Live Tile transparent.

Besides the Live Tile fix, it appears the update also brings improvements characteristic for the Anniversary Update. But Microsoft hasn’t released the changelog of the update yet, so we can’t confirm what these changes are.

It’s a little bit surprising that Microsoft still releases updates for the Microsoft Band app, if we know that a lot of people predict the end of the Band line. Microsoft was supposed to release the Band 3 wearable in October, but rumors suggest it was pushed to Spring 2017, and there’s even a possibility that we won’t see this device at all.

If you want to download this update on your device, just head over to the Store, and check for app updates. Or you can manually download the updated version from the Windows 10 Store.
