Although the Windows Phone 8.1 has been well received generally, some of its features not so well. Xbox Music has been on the latter side, with most people calling the service a downgrade over Windows Phone 8.0. Well, Microsoft isn’t sitting idle and has pushed out an update to the app as promised.

Here’s what version 2.5.2842.0 has to offer:

  • General performance improvements
  • Bug fixes

Fortunately, the changes are more than that. The black screen issues are gone, while the UI looks more polished during transitions and animations. Then there’s also Cortana support in the app. Simple say ” Play <song name>”, and Cortana will open the app to play that particular song.

Microsoft has promised biweekly updates for the app, so we’re hoping if some issues have been left out in this update, will be resolved in the next. Grab Xbox Music here on the Windows Phone Store.
