Microsoft Highlights Windows 8.1 Apps To Experience New Music

It has been a while since we have seen a new spotlight category, but the Windows Store team has just put one up. And boy, it sure is a treat for the music lovers amongst you.

This time around Redmond is highlighting applications that help you experience new music on Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1, and both desktop and tablet users are invited to the party. As is written in the description of this new section:

“Find answers to your questions about music. Explore new genres and listen to broadcasts from around the world, you’re sure to find something that’ll be music to your ears.”

Well if you have questions about music, then be sure to hit the spotlight section.

Some 12 new apps are listed in this new subcategory, including popular selections like iHeartRadio, TuneIn Radio, Shazam, Songza, Slacker Radio and Rhapsody. All of them are offered for free, though, a few come with additional in-app purchase options for extra features.

As is usually the case, this new Windows Store subsection will only be available temporarily, so if you are looking for some new apps to download, make sure you hit the Windows Store.

And if this new spotlight section is not yet available in your market, wait a while, it just might show up.
