    No one wants to go backwards (the past) and yet we are. We have lost modern features. We would like them back and more (the future).

    Question: Anyone actually still having problems with Xbox Music? I use it on the transit to work everyday and even on my outdated 820, I don't really get issues out of it.

    Suggestions like this are a waste of time.

    I don't understand why people think MS is going to reintegrate the music hub into WP8.1. They would need to create a entirely new OS update to enable it again. The whole point of stripping it out of the OS was so they could update it without changing the OS.

    I agree with you in principle - votes for "bring back Zune!" or "bring back Hubs" are as useful as "Bring back Windows XP!" - they're Not Going To Happen.


    But I also understand that when people mean when they say, "Bring back Zune!" isn't necessarily, "Take the code that ran on my old Zune 30 and load it onto my Lumia 820" - because even non-coders probably get that that's impossible. What they mean (what I *hope* they mean, anyway - and certainly what *I* mean) is, "Bring back AT LEAST the functionality that my old Zune 30 had - its smooth, fast & lovely display, its intuitive UI, its (dare I even say it?) ability to play albums gaplessly." And that's NOT impossible. Of course the code isn't directly portable - but the functional spec certainly is.


    Throwing away good code happens all the time - platforms change, and trying to fit old code onto new platforms can be WAY more trouble than it's worth, especially if you weren't particularly clever about anticipating changing platforms when you wrote the old code. But throwing away good DESIGN is stupid, unless you're replacing it with better design, and that is CLEARLY not the case here.


    I hope somebody at Microsoft is listening to the underlying message of the "Bring Back $X!" votes, rather than just dismissing them.

    I could be wrong here (and probably am) but for the casual music listener (like me) Xbox Music is fine. It list your stored music, plays them, finds and plays music from the store and plays any playlist you've created. I think its the hardcore music lovers that want more features.

    if you think it is just a shortcut...how come you couldn't find it? Really people the way the value of the dollar has shrunk a dollar or 2 for a link to a music hub that works is a steal. Plus if you can't afford it just do some Bing searches until you have the points

    From my understanding,
    The reason why XBOX MUSIC has become slow because NOW IT'S AN APP NOT A OS FEATURE.
    Buuutttt....there are other Music Apps such as OneMusic. Also the Calendar is an app but is really fast
