Microsoft is giving 6 month ad-free subscription of it's music streaming service. With Xbox music you can access your favorite music from any place, just login to your account and you are able to stream your content available synced on your Xbox account. These apps require Xbox music pass to play your music. Microsoft also updated web app to free, ad-supported version for all browsers which was earlier available to only Xbox music subscription pass holders. Currently the app is available only on iTunes Store and coming soon to Google Play.


To access these apps on your Android as well as iOS device, you need a Xbox Music subscription. With it, you can add songs to your account, create and edit playlists that will be synced across your logged in devices such as PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, TV, tablet, phone and web.
