Windows 8 Music update brings in-app searching, login-free trial streaming

Believe it or not, the Music app in Windows 8 hasn't let users easily search for music from within the app itself -- they've had to search using OS-level tools. Microsoft is mending that gap in logic with the June update to its built-in jukebox software. The media play now lets you search for songs on both your PC and Xbox Music through an in-app button. And if you don't have any local tunes, you won't have to sign in to start listening -- Music now lets you stream 15 tracks through Xbox Music's ad-supported free tier without using an account. While there aren't other big upgrades to the app, what's here is enough to justify a trip to the Windows Store for the new version.
