Xbox Music app for Windows 8 updated, lets you import your iTunes playlists

Xbox Music

Microsoft has rolled out an update to its Xbox Music app, for both Windows 8 and Windows RT. The Xbox Video app as well as the Nokia Music app both received updates today as well.

“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.

So what’s new in this update? Microsoft has added semantic zoom support, allowing one to zoom in and zoom out using their fingers to find music in a collection. Users can also adjust the app volume and search from anywhere in the app. Xbox Music users can also import their iTunes playlists.

Xbox Music users can also show artists’ most recent albums as well as related artists for a given artist. You can also edit the list of now-playing music and save playlists of your now-playing music. Microsoft has also added “usability improvements” and other minor fixes.
