Xbox Music isn’t exactly known for being well received by the public post Windows Phone 8. Although Microsoft has worked hard to improve the situation and today’s update is another step in the direction. The recent update takes Xbox Music to version 2.6.414.0 and most importantly fixes the missing buy option for individual songs which disappeared last week. Here’s the full changelog:

-Thirteen of our top unexpected app exits (e.g. playback during sync, changing filter with selected songs)
-Album and artist art issues:image
-Some local tracks not showing album art in Now Playing
-Album art flashing while shuffling large collections
-Background artist art flashing
-Inconsistent display of album art when offline
-Local or sideloaded albums not showing album art in Recent Plays
-Content sync interruptions causing all future syncs to fail
-Deleted songs don’t always get removed from your collection
-Unable to playback albums in certain circumstances
-Inconsistent sorting of songs that start with an article (e.g. “A”)

Microsoft has also announced that going forward the updates will be less frequent since the team is focusing on Windows 10. It shouldn’t be disheartening, since the update will hit all current Windows Phone 8 devices.
