The Xbox Music app has been updated to version 1.1.144.0 and comes with improvements to simplify access to streaming music for free, streamlined transition from a trial subscription to a paid Xbox Music Pass, a fix to minimize occasional playback concerns, and additional minor bug fixes. There is also less lag compared to previous versions of the app, especially when using gestures. Hit the Windows Store to grab the updated app if you already have it installed.
