When Microsoft formally introduced its iOS and Android applications it promised that users would see updates in rapid succession. So far, it’s delivering on that promise. Just a month after it first released Xbox Music for iOS, its now added Radio station support and a more usable interface.
Xbox Music for iOS 1.3 not only introduces radio streaming, it also suggests new radio stations based on a user’s past Xbox Music streaming habits. Microsoft has also tweaked the design so that it allows users to get music streaming going faster thanks to bigger album art and less menus. It’s also tweaked the colors and design to be more in tune with the design of Xbox Music on Windows 8.1 and Apple’s iOS 7. Unfortunately, it hasn’t done anything to address the issue that users have trying to pull up the Now Playing screen when not browsing for music.
iOS 7 devices should have already began updating users to the Xbox Music for iOS 1.3, however users can also manually trigger the update from the iTunes App Store.
