Microsoft’s Xbox Music application for Windows Phone can’t quite match its opponents, for example, Spotify, in terms of features, but the organization is gradually keeping on update it with incremental upgrades. Many of these focus on unspecified ‘bug fixes and enhancements’, although the last one – released four weeks ago – included better integration of the new OneDrive cloud music feature.
Microsoft has now revealed its most recent upgrade to the application on Windows Phone 8.1, bumping the version number up to 2.6.677 – and with it comes a few (fairly minor) new features.
In this most recent release, you can now remove a thing from your list of Recent Plays – helpful, but its difficult to argue that that is an killer feature. We’ll let Microsoft describe the second feature in its own words:
Tired of waiting for the application to synchronize? Now you can manually kick one off whenever you like from Settings.
… and that is it as far as new features go. Microsoft says that this update “addresses some top feedback”, suggesting that these features were highly asked for among clients.
