Only long-time Windows Phone owners will know of the controversy surrounding the music note which starts random music playback, which used to be a Play button and next to Music on the list of media.
Microsoft did not quite go so far as to move it back next to Music, but the arrow has now turned back to a Play button, which should make is somewhat more discoverable.
The currently playing track now also shows up on this first pane, instead of on the history pane next door, which is also more logical.
I am sure this is just one of many changes in the music hub and the rest of Windows Phone 8 we will be exploring over the next few months.
Thanks to our tipster.
