Microsoft updated a number of its Windows 10 apps today for non-Insiders. The MSN News app added a new Dark theme, while the Groove Music app has added Explore features and local metadata editing.
The MSN News app added the Dark theme for members of the Windows Insider program in July, but now the new update, which went from version 4.11.156 to 4.13.47 has made that theme available for all Windows 10 users.
Similarly, the Groove Music app added the new Explore and metadata features in previous Insider updates, but the new version for all Windows 10 owners has included those features. The version number has jumped from 3.6.2304 to 3.6.2398
Again, as seen in the screenshot above, these are just two of many Microsoft core apps that have received updates on production. If you are on Insider Fast, Slow, or Release Preview Rings you will likely not see any new updates.
If you do notice any other new features in the apps, please let us know in the comments.
Thanks to Jeremy for the tip!
