Microsoft might introduce a music player feature into SkyDrive, Microsoft’s very own cloud storage and file hosting service. This was first reported by the website LiveSide, who discovered references to the music player feature within the codes of SkyDrive.com, as seen above. “We had been digging around some of the codes in the current version of SkyDrive.com, and noticed references related to a SkyDrive music player,” LiveSide writes. They were also able to extract a resource images of the elusive feature from an internal testing version of the app.
For SkyDrive users, the nifty feature, should Microsoft push it, will allow them to play that “funky music” from any browser – be it on a PC or Mac, or any mobile device. It’s important to note that Microsoft also has Xbox Music, a digital music service for the company’s flagship products and the successor to Zune Music. If the rumor is true, then it is possible – at the slightest degree – that the SkyDrive music player feature is going to be integrated into Xbox Music, although we could be wrong. For now, let’s add a dose of skepticism into the report until we hear it from Microsoft.
