Music app for Windows 8.1 update offers improved management of music and playlists

Just recently, Microsoft rolled out an update to the Video app for Windows 8.1. Not to be outdone, Microsoft has also rolled out an update for the Music app for Windows 8.1, adding improved management of music and playlists.

“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.

In this new app update, the Music app will no longer automatically add your music into your collection when you add music into a playlist. This is supposed to allow you to manage them separately. The app update adds the ability to reorder your platlists with ease. You can select songs and move them top or bottom in one click. Microsoft has also improved the app reliability and performance with this update.
