Xbox Music pricing and cloud music features revealed? Written by Ron on September 26, 2012, 10:28AM
A new report indicates that pricing and cloud music features for the new Xbox Music service has been revealed, thanks to the Windows 8 Music app and the current beta Xbox dashboard update program. This new service has yet to be officially unveiled by Microsoft.
According to the report, the new Xbox Music service will offer unlimited streaming for £8.99 per month or £89.90 per year, this pricing is similar to the British Zune Pass. On top of that, Xbox Music will have a free service that has advertisments, similar to Spotify, and also a scan/match locker service. There are reports of a "single tier dual subscription streaming service" which could refer to music and video streaming. There will also be a new icon on the interface that allows you to Save to Playlist, which is pretty self explanatory. It is obvious that this feature will allow you to sync your playlists across all devices. More on this as Microsoft officially unveils it around the time Windows 8 is launched on October 26th.
