    Edge will not play streamed music when minimized

    Edge will not play streamed music when minimized, it has to be open on the desktop, from latest builds
    This is somewhat annoying, but not a deal breaker.

    That's because it's a Universal App, and all universal apps (with the exception of specific apps written to use background API's for playing music) are suspended when minimized.

    Since you're playing music via flash or similar, it doesn't have the ability to use those background API's while running in Edge, so it too will be suspended. The same is true of Netflix movies, or Youtube videos.

    You would be better off getting a specific app for the purpose of playing the music you want, because those apps can use the background api.
