New Web Version of Xbox Music Said to Launch Next Week
A new web version of Xbox Music is said to release next week which will allow subscribers more access through a browser to the service across various platforms.
Microsoft’s music streaming app is something similar to Spotify; allowing subscribers to “stream millions of songs” and download their favorites for their personal offline collection. The service is currently available on the Xbox 360 console, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices but Microsoft is now looking for a new web version capable of providing wider availability.
A report from The Verge claims that new changes will be brought in next week and that Microsoft has already started updating its Xbox Music pages in prepartion.
The Xbox Music app is also getting a facelift on the upcoming new Windows 8.1 update. It will feature a new design to improve user experience; allowing them to discover their music more easily and quickly. The app will also now support music files from SD cards.
Here’s a screenshot of the new browser version sent in to The Verge by an anonymous tipster. It looks pretty similar to Windows 8 apps.
