Windows 8.1, 10 Video & Music Apps Updated: Curated Lists & Playlist Improvements
Back in November, last year, we have reported the last most important update the Windows 8.1 Xbox Music and Video apps have received. After several minor updates, Microsoft has now brought some new important features for the two apps.
The Music and Video apps (also known as Xbox Music and Xbox Video) are built inside Windows 8.1 and comes pre-loaded with your installation. However, while you can use the apps anywhere in this world, there is a select number of geographical locations where the Xbox Movies Store and the Xbox Music Store are available, so make sure you check it out before complaining that something has got bad. The updates haven’t been released simultaneously, the Video app being the first one to get the update.

What’s new in Windows 8.1 Video app
The most important updates that the Windows 8.1 Video app has received consists in the curated lists of Movies and TV channels and shows; this way, it is much easier to find great and relevant content.

What’s new in Windows 8.1 Music app
The official Windows 8.1 Music application has received more updates than the Video app, and here they are – when adding music to a playlist, it no longer adds it automatically to your collection. This is a much welcome update, as I know how annoying has it been. Managing them separately is much easier and useful now. Also, reordering your playlists is easier as you can now select songs to move them to the top or bottom with just one click. Other minor bugs fixes, as well as improved app reliability are also part part of the update.
