Xbox Music app gets an update

The Windows Phone 8.1 Xbox Music application has received a much needed update.

Perhaps the biggest (and most basic feature) that the update brings is audio scrubbing- that is, the ability to jump to a specific point in a song just by dragging its progress bar.

Previously, you had to keep your finger pressed down on the skip button, giving users a very 90s-esque experience.

Microsoft has included a bunch of other updates as well: from stability and bug fixes, to tweaking how playlists work (some users suffered from playlists duplicating tracks for no reason.)

Here’s the full change long from Microsoft:

“Audio scrubbing is now supported! Slide the track progress indicator in the Now Playing screen to advance to the spot you like.
Smoother FFW and REW animations.
UI fixes to improve visibility of content.
Bug fixed where songs are incorrectly removed from playlists.
Fixes for unexpected app exits.”

Are you going to be more inclined to use the Xbox music app now that these problems have been fixed? Or are you still having issues with the application? Let us know in the comments!
