Xbox Music app gets important update in Windows 8.1, drops Preview tag

Microsoft’s Xbox Music app has just graduated from the beta stage. With a new recently launched major update the app has now dropped the Preview tag and has improved certain navigation and UI elements.

The changelog mentions a slew of changes that will make users’ live a lot better. Among these:

  • The app now features an always-visible playback control bar, so folks can play, pause and skip songs a lot easier
  • The Xbox Music app now has better support for the 50:50 view available in Windows 8.1
  • The app opens more smoothly and faster when called from the search pane
  • Users can now manage folders in their Music library directly from the app
  • Some other performance improvements and bux fixes

It makes sense for Microsoft to put the finishing touches on their app, as Windows 8.1 is expected to RTM at the end of this month, ahead of a public launch in October.
