Read all about artists in the music hub
It would appear that Microsoft is updating the Music & Video hub with new features. According to a number of Windows Phone Central readers who reside in multiple markets, the hub now pulls down and displays the biography of an artist that's currently being viewed on a Windows Phone. This functionality was restricted to the US.
When selecting an artist a new tab will appear between 'songs' and 'related' that will contain a pane of text for the consumer to read through. It's an interesting addition to the service, and appears to be unrestricted - so should you not have a Zune Pass and load your own tracks, it should still pull down the correct biography per-artist if everything is in order.
It's good to see Microsoft roll out features and useful functionality such as this in markets outside the US. Be sure to let us know in the comments should you notice biographies now being displayed while browsing through your music collection on the go.
