    I'm downloading all my songs again, but I don't see any real slowness at all. Now, I'm using an 928 with all internal storage? Is your music on a SD card? Could that be a bottleneck?

    The 'good' news is, this is now STORE updatable. So they could still be working on the final build of Xbox Music yet.

    700+ songs on the phone, only took 2-3 minutes to be usable. Hell, it could take 2 minutes to launch everytime I want to use it now and I wouldn't care, we can finally create and edit playlists on the phone now without needing to have an Xbox music pass!!!! WOO HOO!

    I for one think this is a big upgrade. Sure the initial use may take 10 minutes to sync (thats how long it took to add my 8000 songs, and yes, it was VERY unusable during that period). But after sync is complete we get:
    • editable playlists
    • cortana's music search takes you to THE song, not the album
    • Artists and songs are playable by Cortana
    • separately updatable app

    Is that 8000 songs on your device or in the cloud?

    My problem is with the cloud music - even after it took 10+ minutes to sync, whenever I reopen it, if I go straight to artists, it will take a while to load the names. Anyone else having this problem? I'm considering just giving it a hard reset ...

    Not having any issues here.

    Took about 3 minutes on the initial launch to get all the information for artists and albums and then it's all smooth sailing now

    Both Xbox Music & Video do not have the option to move to SD Card. I am assuming it's baked into the OS as the reason.

    On 8.0, all videos were stored on internal storage. Has anyone tried on 8.1 yet?

    It would be a pity of video and music, 2 of the biggest space hogs couldn't be moved to the SD.

    I have about 4000 in the cloud. Each time I open the app I get "updating collection..." and it starts from the beginning again. It does this every single time. It eventually gets to the end of my collection. Then if I go and do anything else and restart XBOX Music we go through the same thing again. It takes it about 5-10 minutes each time to do this and the phone heats up while doing it. This is on WiFi as well. It would be unusable on cellular at this rate. I'm really disappointed in this. Everything else seems fine but this is awful....

    I don't think it will change anything on cellular. It load your collection from the cloud only the first time. Then it simply load the list of artists from your phone. But it's really slow to load even from the phone. I hope thy will fix that. At least if you jump to another letter it loads from that letter so you don't have to wait for it to get from A to R to load artists that start with R.

    I really miss being able to swipe through songs to skip...
    Now I have to try hitting those even smaller buttons...

    It feels a lot slower, where I prefer the previous one. At least its updateable.
    The cloud thing is welcome, but i dont use it

    I've noticed that podcasts are removed and is a stand alone app now... furthermore, one thing i don't like, is it took away the history, and recent tabs. one thing i hated about windows phones was the lack of features in terms of managing music. when i download songs from xbox music , i would like them to be available in a playlist of recent music. for some reason nothing i download shows up in that playlist. so i always used the recent and history tabs to find my stuff.

    Oh, what a NIGHTMARE!

    It screwed up album art of songs I have on my SD Card (and thet do not exist on the store).

    It also deleted all the personal Artist Pictures I downloads with MPA Tool.

    And it's kind of slow too.

    It also does not work anymore as a Hub for all the music related apps. I liked to keep them there instead of on my homescreen.

    Hope they fix it soon, 'cause music is a BIG part of my phone.

    Well, it must be updating from the cloud each time as it says "updating collection..." and counts up to 4000+ each time I open the app again. That's on the main screen of Xbox music though. If I flip over to say artists or albums, it just sits there with a painful "loading" and lots of black tiles for ages before finally giving me something. Then skipping to another letter will result in the same thing. Ouch.

    This. It is very possible that updates could be coming. Or at the very least, Microsoft always has the ability to update it with a simple app update. It may even be the case that apps like this and the new podcast app where what delayed the 8.1 update until today.

    This app isn't great, but it still gets the job done and hopefully will be updated soon and frequently.

    Don't bother hard reseting your phone, it does not help (I just tried that).

    This is ******* me off. This update to Xbox Music has jacked my entire collection up. Album art no longer matches what I had. So flipping frustrating.

    In storage sense, Video and Music are greyed out when you try to select apps to move to SD Card. Do the movies go to SD card then?

    It's been 3.5 years since Windows Phone 7 shipped without gapless playback while the Zune had it. This is really frustrating
