Xbox Music app for Windows Phone brings support for Live Tile in the latest update

Xbox Music app for Windows Phone 8.1 has just received a massive update. The update adds the much anticipated Live Tile support to the music app. Among other features and improvements, album art is much more reliable in all areas of the app.

Bumping up the version number to 2.6.224, this is notably the ninth update for the Windows Phone 8.1 Music app. Here’s what new in the new version:

  • You can now see incredible artist art & visualizations when playing music on your Live Tile! But do note that it requires Update 1 (OS Version #8.10.14141 and higher)
  • Album art should show up much more reliably in all areas of the app
  • Performance / page loads
  • Preventing any unexpected app exits
  • Reducing our memory footprint, resulting in less app suspensions & terminations during multi-tasking

  • Cleaning up Recent Plays interactions
