Xbox Music

Microsoft's Xbox Music app team has been trying to post updates every two weeks for the Windows Phone 8.1 version ever since it made its debut in April. Today, it looks like the fourth update for the app will be a few days later than planned.

Microsoft announced today:

Our fourth update to the Windows Phone 8.1 Xbox Music app is almost ready. We have a few tweaks we want to get in this one, so expect it early next week. This next release will continue to deliver on feature requests you are providing through the User Voice forum. So please, keep the feedback coming.

Microsoft has already released a list of features and improvements it plans to put into future versions of Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1. They include:

  • Continued focus on stability and performance improvements
  • Initial sync of local and cloud content happens in the background
  • Support for greater than 100 songs in Now Playing queue
  • Faster loading of long lists
  • Transparent Tile support
  • Live Tile support
  • Kid's Corner support
  • General UX improvements

Hopefully the delay means that next week's release will see a ton of new changes and additions to the app.
