Microsoft Upgrade Their Windows 8 Xbox Music application

windows xbox music application for windows 8

Microsoft has been updating a lot of Windows 8 application recently. Now its the turn of Xbox Music. The update brings performance improvements on the RT side, making it a lot more usable on devices like the Surface RT. Additionally, there an independent volume control, which makes playing music in the background a lot easier.
