The built-in Music and Video apps for Windows 8.1 have received a good number of updates in the past few months, and now the Xbox Music application has been improved with some new useful features. Read below for more details on this.
The latest big update that the official Xbox Music app for Windows 8 had received was back at the end of November, last year, when some important improvements have been made to the shuffle feature. Now, according to the official changelog of the app in the Windows Store, the update makes it easier to know what are the files that you can play while being offline. The official update sounds like this: “Songs and albums that aren’t on your PC now appear disabled when you’re offline, so it’s easier to tell what you can play“. Finally, a fix to this small, but annoying bug has been found.
As usually, some other minor bug fixes and improvements have been but in place, but Microsoft hasn’t cared to mention which exactly are these. What many users have been complaining are the tagging and sorting functionalities and at times it seems that a lot of screen space is wasted. Also, I feel that the online matching feature could also deserve some improvements. So, maybe Microsoft will listen and a future update will take care of some of these problems.
