Xbox Music Launch On October 26th With Free Ad-Supported Streaming

Microsoft is launching the Xbox Music Server on October 26th. The sources familiar with Microsofts plans have confirmed the new service will launch at the same time as Windows 8. The service will supposedly provide both subscription-based and free ad-supported streaming music plans for Xbox 360, Windows 8 and Windows Phone users. Microsoft SkyDrive integration is also said to factor heavily into the service’s functionality, allowing for synced playlists and music libraries across all supported devices.

Although Microsoft has plans to offer Xbox Music across multiple platforms, including iOS and Android, apps will not be immediately available we’re told. Microsoft is also planning to launch an Xbox dashboard update to support Xbox Music on its console. The software maker will also update its Music and Video apps for Windows 8 to fully support Xbox Music, around the time of the Windows 8 launch on October 26th. Bloomberg claimed that Xbox Music would launch with Spotify-like streaming options and cloud storage capabilities. Microsoft did state shortly thereafter that reports of it “launching a new music service on Xbox this fall are inaccurate,” only to discontinue certain Zune services the following month.
