So the new version of the MSN web portal has dropped the preview label and those with Windows 8.1/RT and Windows Phone 8.1 have some apps to update.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/cloud/new-msn-goes-live-windows-windows-phone-and-web" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/cloud/new-msn-goes-live-windows-windows-phone-and-web#comments Windows Phone Bing Cloud Windows 8 Windows 8.1 Windows Phone 8.1 Windows RT Tue, 30 Sep 2014 12:53:00 +0000 44301 at http://winsupersite.com Xbox Music and Xbox Video for Windows 8.1 Updated http://winsupersite.com/music-videos/xbox-music-and-xbox-video-windows-81-updated <div class="field-deck"> Nothing major, but always appreciated </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft issued updates for both Xbox Music and Xbox Video for Windows 8.1 today.
