Xbox Video for Windows 8.1 picked up a rare update today from Microsoft (the last refresh was in mid January). Version 2.6.439.0 is now live on the Store and ready to update on your PC, tablet or Surface.

Microsoft has gone ahead and posted a nice changelog as well. Although this is not a massive update, it does bring with it some fine improvements.
