Radio mode and explore still missing

Yes the app keeps improving but with how the competition is going some core features need to be added ASAP. This is a universal app so at least since radio and explore mode are available for pc version then it should be trivial to extend them to the phone version . I can't add new songs to my collection yet and I am already a subscriber for the music service

Works perfectly for me

I have a very large collection and it works great. I am also a music pass subscriber and enjoy being able to play anything I find across the app. It isn't perfect but for a free music player already installed on box I think this is wonderful.

Its getting there

CPU usage on Surface Pro 3 i7 can get really high. I have to run this app in low priority mode so it doesn't interfere with my work day. Sound quality is great. I would like if it copied some of the fun playlists on Google Music. Radio feature works well though. Android version on my phone sucks when using Bluetooth car stereo, constantly skips.

Where's the support for Pass holders?

I don't like that I can't add to my collection. This needs to be addressed seeing as the paying subscribers are being shafted.

Good app but needs a few features and improvements

Here are the issues that needs to be solved: 1: The player sometimes simply does not play after playing a couple of tracks. I just don't know why. Restarting the app fixes it. 2: The app consumes too much memory, needs a low memory mode. 3: The app should be able to organize music by Artists > Albums > Tracks.

Simple and clean

It does everything I need it to. I tell it which folders to scan, it organizes music in a clean, coherent fashion, and I can do all of the basic stuff I'd expect out of any music player such as shuffle, repeat, playlist, etc. Nothing special, but it looks very clean and fits right into the Windows 10 ecosystem.

Three steps backwards

No link to music pass so I can't download anything. New UI is not really at all intuitive. Crashes fairly often.

Sync issues

It's decent, but there are many flaws and nuisance to iron out. Sync issues is the most frustrating shortcoming. My playlists won't even sync. And, multi-disc albums doesn't work properly, even from Microsoft's own store (for example, Quadrophenia by The Who)

Bring back Xbox music

I will call to demand a refund for the rest of the year 30 sec previews on all songs pc or phone and unable to download music from the store. I have a pass and it is worthless now.

Huge improvement in UI over Xbox music. It's a clean interface and easy to use.
