Today Xbox Music for Windows 8.1 devices has received a minor update. The Xbox Music services serves as an alternative to more popular music streaming services like Spotify, Rdio, and (soon) Beats Music. Windows 8 users even receive six hours of free streaming a month in fifteen different countries. So, what has changed in the latest update?

The update itself is minor, and the Windows Store change log remains the same as the last recent major update, so we are left to figure out the new additions ourselves. Upon opening the application on Windows 8.1, there don’t appear to be any visual or functionality changes. We suspect that the latest update delivers bug fixes, along with minor tweaks for performance, though we'll pass the buck on to you to find any other changes.
