Ahead of the launch of Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft launches separate Xbox Music app. Windows Phone 8 devices already have built-in Xbox Music app. But today, Microsoft launches a standalone Xbox Music app for its Windows Phone users. And this separate Xbox Music app includes new features like editable playlists, radio stations sync.

These features are not available in the built-in Windows Phone 8 app. But this standalone Music app is launched as a preview today. Microsoft says that a complete version will come in 2014 with more new features.

Microsoft has just launched its Xbox Video app as well for the Windows Phone 8 devices. The Xbox Video app is originally built-in in Windows Phone 7 and Microsoft did not provide full access of the app for Windows phone 8 users.

However, the company has launched today a new Xbox Video app for Windows Phone 8 users with complete access. They can now download this new Xbox Video app from the Windows Phone Store and can purchase or stream content through Xbox Video on their Windows Phone devices. And the users can also download movies and TV shows into their handset to watch later without any internet connection.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
