A web-based version of the Xbox Music streaming service is now available, Microsoft announced today.
The service allows subscribing Xbox Account holders to browse and listen to Xbox's catalogue of "millions of songs," as well as create special stations around a single artist — similar to Pandora's streaming music service — and build playlists. Songs can be streamed and downloaded to Xbox 360 consoles, Windows 8 devices and Windows Phones. Downloaded tracks can also be synced and played across multiple devices at once.
Users can sign up for an Xbox Music Pass subscription for $9.99 or month or try out a free 30-day trial. According to reports, Microsoft may launch the mobile version of Xbox Music for iOS and Android devices later this year.
Last week, reports circulated that a browser version of the Xbox Music service would launch this week, though no specific date was given.
