    I recently upgraded my Nokia Lumia 930 to WP 8.1 and it looks great, but I'm having one small problem. Under 8.0 if I heard a song I wanted, I went to the store icon, clicked "Music", a searched for what I wanted, and if it was available bought it.
    With 8.1, I click on the store icon, scroll down and click "Music + Video", and search. But no matter what I search for, all it returns are apps or podcasts. What the heck! Did they move the music purchases? ( We all know sometimes MS randomly moves things to...well, no one really knows why). Am I missing some simple change? Any help would be much appreciated.

    I don't buy music through Windows, but I believe there is a new music app that integrates through Cortana. I know Cortana has a music symbol in the top right corner for searching and listening. Don't know if this helps?

    I use nokia mix radio app rather than music app. Music app sucks for me, barely loads images and never does the lock screen thing it's supposed to. Hate it.

    I too don't buy music through windows. I've been using Pandora more then the music player anyways. I find that streaming is better for my needs and haven't purchased music in a long time.
