How to Listen to Your Own Music on Your Windows 8 Tablet
Choose whether to play the chosen item, or add it to your Now Playing list.
Depending on whether you tapped an album, a song, or an artist, you may see several options in the box shown.
Play Album: This simply begins playing all songs on the album, beginning with the first track.
Add to Now Playing: This tacks the selected item onto the end of your Now Playing list, so it plays after the currently listed music.
Explore artist: Tap this to bring a new window listing more information about the artist, his biography, and his availability on Xbox Music Pass.
Play Smart DJ: Tap this, and the Xbox Music appears, playing a customized radio station built around that artist’s style. (And, unless you’ve paid, you’ll hear advertisements, too.)
Play all: This plays all of the songs by the artist you’ve chosen.
To see more options, slide your finger inward from the screen’s bottom or top edge. The App bar appears, offering different ways to play your music, as well as controls for pausing, fast forwarding, or skipping to the next track on your list of currently playing songs.
