    Customizing music app tile


    Hello all
    I have the default Microsoft music app installed (and lovin it), but its live tile is just too dull->

    Isnt there any way to customize it a little (like make it show artwork on live tile)?
    Or please tell me some free alternate music app that has a good looking live tile
    tnx

    Windows 8 64 bit.


    I use the Groove Smart Music Player app, that one does add a cover art photo to the live tile.
    Take a look in the store and try some of your own I would suggest ;-)

    For select artists, the live tile will show a picture of the group/artist who made the song. However, if the song you are playing isn't highly known, there won't be an image.
