Microsoft updates Xbox Music, adds dedicated volume controller

The updates to three core Windows 8 apps are not even a day old, and the Microsoft’s team has launched yet another update, by releasing a new version of Xbox Music. The update will ensure improvements in speed on the Windows RT and adds  an independent volume controller.

The new version will now feature a dedicated volume controller which will be restricted to the Xbox Music app, and will not alter the sound settings of the device. The new version will also ease the access to music in the cloud and offer an option to automatically add preferred songs in to music stored in the cloud. The app reportedly comes with a preference panel that would let the user shortlist songs from their collection, and add these to other Xbox Music devices, or sync the content with the cloud.

Besides this, other changes include a modified ‘now playing’ UI which will allow you to see the whole list of tracks from an album, along with the currently playing track.
