This is a huge step up from where the Xbox One’s music options were previously. During the launch of the console back in 2013, you had to go through some serious hoops just to have custom music playback available in the game you were playing. First of all, you would have to turn off the music in the game itself, and then open up the Snap menu. You would need to have the Xbox Music app installed and then open that up in the Snap menu. You would have to then connect your Xbox to your desktop or other storage device where the music was located. From there you could then play your custom songs. The drawback to that method, however, was that you would then have a fifth of the screen taken up by the Snap menu, which was unsightly and distracting.
