The default Music app in Windows 8 and Windows RT might not be your preferred solution for seeing movies or listening to music, but it’s getting better by the day, thanks to its frequent update cycle. Now, according to the latest release note, an important update has been issued which makes it much easier to tell when albums or songs in the Explore tab aren’t available for streaming, or have other restrictions. This has been a small, but annoying glitch that many have been reporting and now it’s been taken care off. A wide range of other minor fixes and improvements are there, so you can leave your comment and let us know what have you experienced new.
