Microsoft is broadening its most eminent Xbox Music service to new platforms with the release of devoted apps for both iOS and Android users!
Xbox Music service works similar to other streaming services like Rdio and iTunes Radio, enabling users to play music on-demand and build playlists with their desired songs for listening later. Unluckily, the iOS and Android versions do not support offline mode.
The company says that they will refurbish iOS and Android versions for every 4 to 6 weeks and add the support for offline access to music in the next few months.
However, both the mobile apps has a simpler user interface (closely resembles Spotify) and offer the basic access to music, with the facility to sync and change playlists.
The launch of iOS and Android versions follow the release of Web-based version, and the company has also revamped the web-based version today. Now the Xbox Music Web version will offer free music streaming facility to all browsers (earlier it offered only to subscribers).
After a period of 6 months, the web-based version will have finite hours of free music streaming, but for now it’s available for all with ads.
iOS and Android users can download the Xbox Music app from Apple App Store and Google Play Store for free. But users need to have Xbox Music Pass subscription to access the app. The Xbox Music Pass is valued at $9.99/month or $99.90/year, or users can try the premium service free of charge for complete 30 days.
