Microsoft Expands Xbox Music with iOS, Android, and Web Streaming Apps
Microsoft has expanded the Xbox Music service today by offering apps for both iOS and Android, along with free web streaming in your browser. Xbox Music will continue to expand with the upcoming release of the Xbox One in November, and the big Windows 8.1 update due next month.
“Starting today, your Xbox Music Pass brings the catalog of music to iOS and Android devices. Get unlimited access to the songs and artists you want at any time with playback across your tablet, PC, phone and Xbox console for $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year. Add a song to your collection on your Xbox, and you’ll also have that song on your iOS, Android or Windows 8 device on the go or at the office. Xbox Music Pass also unlocks unlimited access to tens of thousands of music videos on your Xbox 360.
With the addition of free streaming on the Web, enjoy on-demand access to 30 million songs globally for free on the Xbox Music Web player at http://music.xbox.com or through the Xbox Music app on all Windows 8 tablets and PCs. Discovering and enjoying free music is as easy as typing an artist or song name and hitting “play.” Songs are instantly available to stream at no cost and for you to create an unlimited amount of playlists.”
The Xbox Music apps are free downloads, but the Xbox Music subscription does require a fee.
