    How to prevent "this app needs to update" (Xbox Music)


    I was wondering, am I able to use the Applocker to prevent this from occurring? I can sadly not give a screeny of this... because if the message appears, there seems to be no way to get rid of it, but making a new local account? Any help is GREATLY appreciated and REWARDED with my gratitude and thankfulness

    Hello Skull Kid,

    This message is to let you know that there's a new version of the Xbox Music app from the Store, and that it needs to be updated. Updating the app will get rid of the message. If you don't update the app, then it may stop working properly or not work at all in the future.

    You'll need to be signed in to the Store with a Microsoft account to update the app though.

    Hope this helps.
