Microsoft have continued with their regular updates of the Xbox Music and Video apps with another release yesterday. Version of Xbox Music is faster to load your music collection, scrolling has been improved and while your phone is charging it will sync with your cloud collection. There also bug fixes included fixing of album art:

In version, you will find:

It’s faster to load your collection, particularly the collection lists and artist details

Scrolling in your collection album and artist lists is smoother

While your phone is charging, the app will opportunistically sync with your cloud collection

Better messaging as your collection builds and syncs with the cloud

We also fixed a number of bugs! A few notable issues we addressed:

Album art not appearing (or incorrectly using the Xbox Music catalog version) when present in local MP3s

Scrolling through a playlist being jerky and seeming to scroll infinitely

Shuffling your collection having too few songs, and including duplicates

‘New music’ items showing either twice or not at all

This update (version on Windows Phone 8 and on Windows Phone 8.1) includes:
