Music and Video apps for Windows 8.1 receive new updates, no change log available Written by Ron on February 11, 2014, 09:55AM
Microsoft has rolled out a new update to both the Music app and Video app for Windows 8.1. Also known as Xbox Music and Xbox Video, these two new updates offer no change log, which leaves us wondering what exactly is new.
"Xbox Music brings you all the music you love in one simple app. Play and manage music from your personal collection and browse and buy songs from Xbox Music. Instantly stream millions of songs free on your Windows 8/Windows RT device. Or get an Xbox Music Pass for unlimited access to music across all your devices. Limits on free streaming apply," the app description reads.
Unfortunately, Microsoft has not provided a change log for the update, which is typical behavior from the devices and services giant. The change log that is currently listed in the app's description page is very old. Not to be outdone, the Video app also received an update, but just like the Music app, there is no updated change log available.
"Xbox Video brings you the latest HD movies and TV shows on your Windows 8/Windows RT device and makes it easy to watch what you love wherever you are. Rent and buy new blockbuster movies and favorite classics, or catch up on last night's episodes of the hottest TV shows. Xbox Video also brings you instant-on HD to get you watching right away. Plus, explore your video collection and play your own videos," the app description reads.

Update: The Music app and Video app updates are minor, as they both addresses bugs and improve app performance.
