Xbox Music to Release On Android and iOS Devices

Microsoft’s Xbox Music is to introduce applications for Android and iOS devices and allow free streaming on the Web, the company said yesterday.

Xbox Music was launched about a year ago, and it’s currently available through Xbox 360 consoles, a Windows 8 app and a version that lets subscribers stream through Web browsers. A subscription to the service, which allows access to some 30 million songs, costs about €10 a month.

With the free, ad-supported Web version and the new apps, the company will try to reach more users by allowing access to music through a variety of connected devices. It’s the latest move in Xbox’s transition from primarily a multi-player gaming system to a full entertainment service.

This comes as competitor Apple Inc. prepares to launch its own service, iTunes Radio, and after Google Inc. unveiled Google Play Music All Access. That adds to an already crowded industry that includes entrenched players such as Spotify.
