Xbox Music for Android gets an update, brings offline playback support

Xbox Music for Android has finally introduced a new update that brings users the ability to download their playlists for offline playback.
January 14, 2014
Microsoft Xbox Music subscribers will be happy to know that a new update has now rolled out, bringing users the ability to make their playlists available for offline listening. Although this feature isn’t exactly new for competing services like Spotify and Google Play Music All Access, it’s still a welcome change.

Aside from the ability to download playlists for offline listening, the update’s change-log also mentions that you can now play all of your collection by genre. While not specifically mentioned, we also imagine that the update likely brings some minor bug fixes.

The new update certainly isn’t a massive one and will likely not be enough to tempt new users over to their service, but for those that are curious to see whether or not the grass is greener on the other side, it’s worth noting that Microsoft does offer a free 30-day trial of their music service for first time users. For existing users, you can grab the update directly from Google Play.
