Microsoft has finally made Xbox Music a more viable option for Android users, with offline access finally added in todays update. While the folks up at Redmond said from the word go offline music would always become a feature, eventually, it's taken four months to get it. 

Offline music access is a big deal to folks on strict data plans, and as such the necessity to stream everything may have turned more than a few away. The bigger question perhaps is; now it's here, are you tempted back to Xbox Music? Grab the latest update from the Play Store link above.

Still a terrible excuse for application. I was hoping this would let me stop carrying my Zune HD around. This still does not sync with what I have on my Zune/purchased or downloaded and it also give me a play rights issue when playing most of what I have added manually.

Agreed. I really liked the integration with Xbox Music on my WP8 device, but on my Android this is subpar. I dislike the lack of ability to download any song (only playlists), and there are ZERO exploration options in this app.

Exactly. I only came to give props to the "Keep Fishin'" choice....

This app works well for my purposes. I really like it. Everyone's concerns are valid though.

Anyone had issues with crashing? Its stops every time I try to play a song. Not sure if the update caused it or not.

I am having the same problem. Everything worked fine until the update.

I love Xbox music on wp8 as well. I was hoping for offline playback. Offline playback is what separates Xbox music from the Google play version. Not to mention the poor way the upload service handles music previously purchased or other file types.
