With the Windows Store now open on the recent Windows 8.1 leaked builds, updates coming to the Windows 8.1 Preview are beginning to surface early. One of the biggest updates coming to Windows 8.1 is for the Xbox Music app, which is set to receive a UI overhaul. While the update isn’t currently available for download, it is listed in the now open Windows 8.1 Store, which means screenshots are available.
