App Update Roundup: Xbox Music, Xbox Video and Twitter got updated

| |
It is another morning and we are back to work with some more new updates to the well known apps. Microsoft is on a tight schedule, delivering updates to those apps every two weeks in an effort to bring them to par.
Heading to the Store and version for Xbox Music and for Xbox Video are now live for downloading and updating.

Xbox Music

  • It's faster to load your collection, particularly the collection lists and artist details
  • Scrolling in your collection album and artist lists is smoother
  • While your phone is charging, the app will opportunistically sync with your cloud collection
  • Better messaging as your collection builds and syncs with the cloud

A number of bugs fixed:

  • Album art not appearing (or incorrectly using the Xbox Music catalog version) when present in local MP3s
  • Scrolling through a playlist being jerky and seeming to scroll infinitely
  • Shuffling your collection having too few songs, and including duplicates
  • 'New music' items showing either twice or not at all

Xbox Video

  • Quicker loading for personal video, movie and TV show collections
  • Expired rental downloads are now automatically cleaned up to free up disk space
  • Additional bug fixes


Last week, the official Twitter application for Windows Phone got a major update, featuring multi-photo uploads and inline previews for Twitter photos, Vine videos and other select content. Today, the app has received another update, but don't get too excited. We don't notice any new features. 
The latest version is If you're curious to have it now on your device, head over to your Windows Phone Store app and force the update.
