Xbox Music will launch on October 26, will deliver music with advertising
Microsoft is preparing a major event on October 26, where not only Windows 8 will be released, but will be released on Xbox Music music service. According to The Verge, the service will have a subscription plan and an offer of free music, but with advertising, similar to how Spotify currently operates.
The service will be available in Windows 8, the Xbox 360 and Windows Phone. The company hopes to offer it on other devices, including iOS and Android, although these applications will not be available at launch.
A key part of the service will integrate with SkyDrive, which allow users to store songs and playlists in the cloud, and will be available from multiple devices – in the style of what makes right now Amazon and Google .
The plan would also involve an update to the Xbox to support the music system in the console. The music and video applications that come in direct support Windows 8 will integrate xbox music from the time of release on October 26.
It is not known which countries will begin running the service, but we hope that does not take long to get to our region.
