    Since the 8.1 update this functionality is completely broken. Before the update I would simply drag and drop a file to the music folder on the internal storage. The phone would recognize it and then I could play it from the music app. Now it takes anywhere from 5 minutes to never actually detecting that I added a file.

    Anyone else with the same experience and or a temporary workaround?

    You could try to add music using windows media player
    I haven't gotten 8.1 yet, so I can'really see where you're coming from.

    get ready for all kinds of music frustrations. Xbox music in 8.1 is a total mess. It is a complete embarrassment for Microsoft.

    From reading around I've gathered that
    Unfortunately that's about the only thing I do on the phone.

    The latest music update from Monday seems to have helped this. It's not instant like under 8.0 but new additions pop in after about 2 minutes.
