Hello,

Microsoft will be launching Xbox Music some time in 2012 and it will be compatible with Xbox 360, Windows 7 and 8 PCs, tablets and Windows phones. With a library with over 30 million tracks its customers will be able to enjoy on the listed devices I stated above. The launch of Xbox music will put an end to as we all know Zune. There is not too much talk on the new music move. It seems as if Xbox is trying to keep it unwraps until it gets closer to the date of release.

The only discussion about the program was at the recent E3 video game convention in Los Angles.

The so-called “Xbox Music” is a music player built-in to the Xbox game console. The app is designed for downloading and streaming allowing you to enjoy unlimited music on your Xbox gaming console. It is available in two versions when it was launched: ad-supported free version and Xbox Music Pass. The free ad-supported version allows unlimited streaming for the first six months.

Beyond that, you will be restricted to a certain number of streaming hours. The Xbox Music Pass is the paid version of Xbox Music and priced at around 8.99 pounds. This removes all advertisements and you can enjoy as much music as you want. Xbox Music was planned to be launched on October 26, 2012 together with the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system.

Unfortunately, Microsoft closed the free Xbox Music streaming service on December 1, 2014 but will still continue offering music streaming through the Xbox Music service but users have to purchase an Xbox Music Pass subscription at $9.99 a month. Xbox Music will come pre-installed on all devices running on Microsoft Windows 8. Xbox Music is now known as Groove Music together with Zune Music.
