    Just thought I would make a thread over this. What do you guys prefer Microsoft use for its windows phones? Xbox music or Zune. Which one do you think is better?

    ZUNE is the clear winner. We want the ZUNE PC desktop features, (all of the current features, including the ones MS have removed), the name could be Xbox Music or something else. OneMusic? Or even better, combine all the ZUNE spin off apps to be OneMedia Player.

    Zune Client. I am as mad as Hitler in those videos over XBOX Music. I mean now. in 8.1, it is like downloaded music doesn't matter. If I delete downloaded music, it says it will want to delete it from my cloud collection too. Why??? Why??? I just want it off my phone but still in the cloud collection.

    Shuffling playlist songs is horrid...I am just frustrated with the entire music experience.

    Zune was hands down the best music player I've ever used. The devices themselves were far better built and looked much nicer than competing iPods and the Zune software also looked much better and just felt much better than iTunes ever did. Xbox Music has some pluses (like the name is far more recognizable and it is available on more devices), but isn't anywhere close to as well designed as Zune was. The best way to fix Xbox Music is to create a desktop/Modern program for wireless syncing and stuff, keep the Xbox Music pass (MS really needs to combine all of these passes. Xbox Live was always overpriced and now that Playstation Plus offers more than it, Xbox Live is made that much worse. If MS could combine Xbox Music, Xbox Live, OneDrive, Skype, etc. into one Premium pass thing, that would be great) and unlimited streaming, and add a music locker feature like Google Play Music (where you can store a a few thousand songs in the cloud for free and purchased songs take up no space, to encourage purchasing music) for web use and use on multiple devices.

    Zune...

    Everything about Zune is way better than what MS has now....

    Hell, even Zune's promotional ad's (go look on YouTube) are better than anything MS has done in the last several years....

    BS.

    People have every right to be maddernhell about it. It's a steaming pile of cow dung🐮
    ...all of it and so is the video aspect of this.

    Zune.

    Look,its time the fired the idiots in charge of this wet dream and get back to doing things they way they should have been in the first place.

    I dont want to jump through hoops to listen to my tunes or have zero control when watching my movies.

    Had I known it was really as bad as it is with no reasonable expectation of them getting it fixed right,I wouldn't have switched to a WP and may leave it real soon.

    I like them both: Among other features, I like Zune to manage my Collection, and I like the touch and pin features of XBM.

    But, I mostly prefer to listen to my vast collection of downloaded and ripped albums.

    So my opinion is BS is it?

    You just proved my point about people overreacting, the Music and Video apps are separate so they can improve them without an OS update. Music is still the same "beta" version we had on WP8, its had a single update on WP8.1 since release and Microsoft have committed themselves to bi-weekly updates. Video isn't that bad, it plays your videos as well as allowing you to buy them so what more do you want!!!

    I swear people have zero patience these days, it's all "I want this, I want it working perfectly from day one and I want it now".

    I got onboard the Windows Phone/MS train late, so I haven't experienced Zune, neither in the HD or Windows Phone 7.

    Kinda sad, considering so many say it was so much better. I guess not knowing better is a good thing since I'm relatively content with Music. (stuck with the old one though)

    Yes actually it is

    They could have just as easily continued Zune as a app with all the features it has. Instead they chose to fix what wasn't broken and start killing it off just to start all over again with a format that is plagued with issues.

    They don't understand that many folks aren't counsel driven,nor ever will be.

    They had a great thing in Zune,Xbox music isn't.

    And you damn right,for what I paid for this device,I think I am more than entitled to have it right friggin now.

    Ah right, so if my opinion isn't the same as your opinion then it's BS?

    If you actually read my post instead of just skimming it and then posting the you would see "Music is still the same "beta" version we had on WP8, its had a single update on WP8.1 since release and Microsoft have committed themselves to bi-weekly updates." You do know what that means, don't you?

    If you have WP8 then why the hell did you install Xbox Music when you have the Music+Video Hub instead. If you have the WP8.1 developer preview then YOU chose to install it, Microsoft didn't force the DP on you.

    Microsoft has had years to make this right and they haven't.


    Yes,it's swell they are updating their POS music player,and they should,but when paying full price for a phone,I have every right to complain that no music player works properly either on 8.0 or 8.1.

    So to me your opinion is total garbage just like the music players Microsoft is offering.

    I don't want a game console on my phone,I want a music player that can see what music I have loaded,sync it to the cloud properly for back up,and not screw up the songs,titles,or album art,then duplicate entries. I don't think that is too damn much to ask for.

    Why is it that when folks that have legitimate complaints speak out about something,people like you want to silence us?
    BTW, the music and movie player never worked properly on 8.0,and just because you think they do is meaningless to me. They have had more than enough time to fix their screw up with this issue.

    I want this to work properly, on WP, not Android or IOS and I know for a fact I am not alone in my feelings.

    Zune is the absolute winner!
    Microsoft is making separate apps so they can update them without OS update? So, they already know they won't do it right. IT'S A MUSIC APP!!! It is supposed to be playing music, nothing more! Zune was just perfect, it didn't mess up my album arts, it didn't have any issues playing music, it was fast and reliable. Now, xbox music is just the opposite of all that.

    Precisely my feelings too.......

    From what I can see is Microsoft doesn't want us to use anything but their own xbox music player. They want to have everything cloud based and fee subscription streaming based. They got to understand folks will leave them if they keep this crap up, regardless of how good WP is.

    Where have I ever stated that people have no right to complain, where have I ever stated that I'm trying to silence anyone. Seems like you're arguing for the sake of it and trying to silence me because my opinion is different to everyone else including you, how hypocritical is that!!!

    As I stated before Xbox Music is pretty much the same version released on WP8 and MS have a road map for features they plan to implement and that's exactly what they are doing. No software is perfect but that's why updates exist, you build on what already exists and Xbox Music existed on WP8.

    Just because I think that Music and Video work is meaningless to you, that's because it's my OPINION and I never stated it as a fact. I even state in my very first post that Zune is better but as usual you completely overlooked that fact.

    You stated folks like myself were overreacting to this to which I replied BS.......go back and look at your own comments.

    Folks have every right to be upset with this and have every right to post about it. There is no hypocrisy in this,but in your comments.

    If you haven't noticed,go and look at the issues folks like myself have been having,and while I personally have only had to deal with this since march,others have been complaining about it for almost 2 years.

    I don't give a tinker's damn what road map Microsoft has for this, I paid full price for a phone that I can't play music on right now....and it needs to be fixed right now not get excuses from Microsoft of fixes in the future or having to put up with BS from the likes if you for making excuses on their behalf.

    They had a great music player...it was called Zune...the one taking it's place is a cluster puck plain and simple. Go read the various threads on it if you don't believe me . What part are you failing to comprehend, it didn't work on 8.0 and it's even worse on the DP..and I fully understand it's a developer preview and so it's a gamble if it will or not,but,I and many many others were hoping that it would.

    If it works fine for you and your happy with it...that's just peachy damn keen,but your in the minority.

    Right, I'm done with you and I'm done with this thread. You fail to read and comprehend my posts and then claim my opinion is BS because it doesn't conform to what YOU think it should and then you tell me that that I'm trying to silence others. The only hypocrite here is YOU!!!!!

    On the contrary, I DO see the complaints but I also see what MS are doing to fix it, however, I'm done with you because you're so blinded by hatred that you fail to see any other point of view other than your own. I'm done with this thread as it's just become another "I hate Xbox Music" thread.

    But WTF am I doing explaining myself to you when all I'll get is another insult.
