    They better!
    Since I got my first WP device in 2010, this past week has been the worst week since.
    Even Zune 30 from 2006 had a better playback experience.

    Waiting on that update too. Aside the random crashes I can't figure out why it has to re-find my music on every load up of the app. I have one playlist of 100 songs why do I need watch the little loading dots at the top of the screen every time! And I don't want it loading on playlists from my PC. I want only what I loaded onto it to show up. Hate this new app.

    claims we're supposed to have gotten it yesterday, but nobody's gotten it yet even today. Hopefully they're just taking an extra couple days to make it extra great.... hopefully.... maybe.... please....

    Sebastion, you're giving yourself blue balls. Waiting for Microsoft to make a great music player is like waiting for the rapture. There are so many problems and so little features on the puny little music app, it's a wonder what could take them so long to correct the few issues they have decided upon. It's best to just get an iPhone if you are a music lover, and use your phone for music mostly.

    Wait a second, the app is in beta state, you can complain but you can't expect zero bugs in a beta app. Your sentence is a non-sense since you agreed with installing a preview software.

    And here is the proof that the app is in beta stage:

    New 8.1 app inbound

    Now for the caveats. The app we now have in the 8.1 Preview for Developers is, in fact, basically the old beta version released late last year. It has not been optimized for 8.1, and it obviously needs some polish. That’s good news in the sense that Microsoft is not ‘shipping’ this as the final product.

    Xbox Music is pretty terrible on Windows Phone 8.1, but an update is near | Windows Phone Central

    Well to be fair, they did say something along the lines of "this is the final operating system build" without mentioning "oh and by the way, we've decoupled some apps like music from the OS, so they're not in final build, and they suck right now, beware".

    The basic music app in 8.0 worked fine for local collections- one would assume 8.1 would have at least had that basic functioning, but they took that out and now only use an app for music on 8.1. I use my phone for a lot of music. Honestly, if they don't get this straightened out I may have to consider a different OS for my next phone.

    They posted on Microsoft answers that an update will be pushed out April 22nd. But on April 22nd, the poster changed his post to say it's actually week of April 22nd. I used to think the Xbox music team is just incompetent, now I think they are not only stupid, but also arrogant and unethical.

    I know its a dev preview but I mean its a simple app that plays music, why is it sooooo horrible? Did they not bother to test it themselves for at least one minute before they released the app?

    In the time Zune was degraded to Xbox music now, Google created a cloud music collection and added subscription service to its phone. I mean - the Xbox music experienced on Windows phone 8.0 was bad - how can they managed to make it worse???? This always befuddles me.

    The beta app is just a placeholder. You should be lucky that it plays music. Why you expected consumer quality is beyond me.

    Given that it never worked well, the expectation is that it had hit bottom in 8.0. No one expected the 8.1 Music app to get worse. Maybe stay the same, but not worse. That's why.

    I signed up for the Music Pass, but so far, it's not worth it for me. I'm hoping that with the update it will improve.

    I wish they acquire Spotify. Someone mentioned it here and I truly think it would be an amazing idea.

    I also totally agree with ULOP3Z. It's a freaking music app! Look at Google Music and imitate. There's less shame in that than in producing the current dysfunctional music app. It lacks compared to Pandora and Spotify in terms of creating mixes, and variety. It lacks against Google Music in terms of functionality and being able to stream your own music from the cloud without restrictions. I won't compare it to iTunes as I don't have recent experience it.

    I feel silly, myself. I hated the app before getting the pass and still wanted to give MS a shot. I thought it can't be that bad and maybe I'm not getting all the benefits because I don't have the pass. Nothing changed.
