Microsoft announced its Xbox Music late last year, although we’re sure since the company has barely mentioned it over the past eight months, you may have forgotten it even existed. I sure have. Regardless of that, Microsoft looks to be ready to unveil what we expect it’s taken eight months to put together as a web-based version of Xbox Music will reportedly launch next week.
According to sources familiar with Microsoft’s Xbox Music plans, the web-based version of Xbox Music will launch next week at music.xbox.com and the company has already started updating its Xbox Music pages to prepare itself for its upcoming launch. Xbox Music’s web portal will work similar to how Spotify’s web version does as you’ll be able to stream music through your browser and manage playlists.
The web version of Xbox Music isn’t the only thing Microsoft is launching as a refreshed version of its Windows 8 application is also expected to be made available when Windows 8.1 launches. Hopefully you’re the kind of person who isn’t already deeply in love with your current streaming-music service of choice and would trust Microsoft with all of your music needs once Xbox Music launches.
