    Hate you new Music player in windows phone 8.1 ? Vote for old music hub

    You can vote here >>> https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/f...phone-8-into-8

    Im really disappointed with new music player, it is opening for 20 seconds or more on my lumia 820 (on 920 its 12+ seconds) also desing is horrible compared to old music hub in WP8.0
    Updates can fix bugs but not resuming/opening time

    Just use the app "Music Hub Tile"
    (assuming that's what you want)

    from here on out, MS is probably going to just plow forward improving the existing app.

    I think nobody wants to pay only for shortcut, and when you can go in to music hub through lockscreen or "volume menu", it always send you in to 8.1 music app not to music hub. I want to say, "Music Hub Tile" is not good alternative

    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.

    For me, the vote conveys frustration and the message that says the new Xbox Music app sucks ***, and that Microsoft should put more efforts into getting back performance and functionality of the original.

    I agree. Actually we need all the functionality of Zune with WP7 plus new features. Search Uservoice and vote.

    DONE.

    The reason why XBOX MUSIC has become slow because NOW IT'S AN APP NOT A OS FEATURE.

    When they moved away from Zune they moved away from the music "experience" IMO. This app is total and complete garbage. If you weren't around for the Zune days, you have no idea what you're missing and probably don't understand why this app sucks so much.

    I can't even use it anymore it's so frustrating. Where are my picks based on things I listen to? Why can I not search the store and have it sort by simple categories like Artist, Album, Song, etc? Why does it lag like crazy? Why is there an audible noise in between tracks?

    What's the big problem here?

    Yeah, Xbox Music used to suck horribly and put us through loads of waiting... but all the issues I originally complained about have been resolved through updates. It now sees all my music, doesn't take long to load... and the artist images in the background make it much better-looking than the old Xbox Music imo.

    New music hub is more useful than old. But both of them are horrible.

    Totally in agreement with you Awesomeindeed. Been with Zune since day one. Zune was light years of any current service all the way back in 08. Remember file transfer to other device. They made fun of the name them bit it.

    There's already a suggestions for that probably half a dozen or so. Cluttering up the uservoice with suggestions like this is just going to make it more of an unmanageable mess than it already is.

    that is completely off topic.

    No, the 720 doesn't have the screen space for on screen buttons, get your phone repaired if that's an option.

    The big problem is that MS phased out the Zune hardware in favor of Windows Phone, and then they took their beautiful piece of software which had loads of features and completely scrapped it and gave us a barely working basic app that looks and functions as if it was coded by a 3rd grader. Winamp could do everything you describe back in its early days well over a decade ago. Zune was way ahead of its time and was probably one of the best if not the best music player option out there, period.

    Really, the only thing I really want is my music apps to be launchable in one place, access to music and podcasts in the same spot, access to the FM radio in the same spot as well. In other words, the old Music Hub.

    The Zune desktop software is still available, a free download, and runs on XP through Windows 8.1. It works with the Xbox music video services (Xbox Music Pass) and MY music stored in the cloud.. I recently purchased a movie on my Xbox 360 and it showed up on ZUNE and I watched it. Even though MS has removed some features, it is still light years ahead of other software! The curated playlists and I think celebrity playlists and podcast management are still there. The animated graphic visuals of the bands are still beautiful! It's amazing! I just wish it synced with my windows phone 8. It seems that the programmers were so good, that when you take out a few features (like social, syncing with WP8) what is left is still great!

    Old music hub is in WP8.1 but you must use short cut to launch it, short cut is for 1$/1€ and also you can launch it through "volume menu"

    sorry, but your understanding isn't correct.

    its slower because it was simply badly written/less optimized in comparison to the old hub.

    I still using Zune software 😊 I just love it! I wish they came up with remote for playing music on phone as Zune players have it!
