We’ve seen Microsoft recently update quite a lot of its core apps, such as Windows Reading List, the Mail, Calendar and People and others. Now, Redmond is updating the Xbox Music Windows 8.1 app with some much needed options. In the beginning of this month, the Music and Video apps were given an important overhaul, and now Microsoft thinks there’s still a few things to fix with the Xbox Music player.

The most important change is that now you can shuffle all the music in your Xbox Music collection with just a single tap.  Also, you can nowdouble-click to play any song in your collection or the store, a feature that is quite normal for  desktop use. Microsoft has also added this:

Play the most popular songs from your favorite artists right on their details pages Discover great music – choose Explore to find the top songs for any genre! It’s now simpler to buy the albums and songs you want to keep forever. You can redeem Microsoft gift cards, too!
