Xbox Music adds offline mode for Android app

New, 16 comments

Xbox Music users can now listen to playlists on their Android phones offline, Xbox Wire announced today.

Xbox Music is Microsoft's digital music service developed in 2012. Playlists created on Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows 8 or the service's website are accessible without mobile internet. According to the update, the app will allow users to store their playlists directly onto their device.

The service came pre-loaded on all Xbox Ones, though it does require a subscription. Microsoft added iOS and Android apps in September of last year. Although the service initially offered access to music via a stream, general manager Jerry Johnson told Polygon that adding offline capabilities was a high priority.
