New features include:

You can now switch between two different views on the artist page when browsing your collection. One view shows you all the albums in a grid; the other shows all the songs, grouped by album. Microsoft also added quick actions to albums, artists, videos, and playlists when you hover over them for quick selection and playback.There’s also now a handy context menu available if you right-click on the now playing screen. From here you can open new files without navigating to another page. You can also quickly access the album page and the artist page for your current song. Microsoft added a new “video enhancements” feature as well, which allows you to adjust the brightness and contrast of your video.
