Microsoft’s Xbox Music application was launched earlier today for both iOS and Android and it is now available for download in Apple’s and Google’s application stores. The app is a rival to Spotify and Pandora, giving unlimited streaming to Xbox Music Pass subscribers.
The music streaming service is available directly online, therefore you will be able to head to music.xbox.com and stream music without paying anything. All you need is a Microsoft account. There are virtually millions of songs in Xbox Music, but after 6 months the number of hours of music streaming will be limited, still you will have free access. As I was mentioning above, the Xbox Music Pass subscribers have unlimited streaming.
Microsoft will also include a radio feature in their free web player, but this will not happen sooner than a couple of months.
The user interface seems pretty friendly, thus if you want to download Xbox Music for your Android device follow this link to Google Play store.
Android Police writes that “device support seems pretty lacking,” adding that there are “no tablets [supported] right now, and even some phones like the HTC One are blocked.” Maybe you are lucky and your handset is among the ones compatible with Microsoft’s music streaming service.
