Windows Blue Preview Said To Bring Major Updates For Xbox Music App

The new Windows Store opened for business over the weekend, allowing users that have installed one of the various leaked builds of Windows Blue (or Windows 8.1) the ability to download Metro apps.

As a result, a number of people that had installed the leaked builds have taken to the apps repository to download and try out the new and updated Metro apps that are said to be a part of the final version of the upcoming operating system.

A new set of screenshots that have recently made their way to the web confirm that the Xbox Music app will be redesigned in this new version of Windows — giving it not just a new look but an expanded feature set as well.

Little else is known about this at the moment, but the screenshots do show an engaging new redesign.

It is also not yet clear whether Microsoft plans to offer this as a preinstalled Metro app on the preview version of Windows 8.1, or whether users will be required to manually update it via the Windows Store.

More details, nevertheless, are expected in just a few days, as we get closed to the official debut of the preview version of Windows Blue. The unveiling is set for June 26, the first day of this year’s BUILD developer conference.
