Xbox Music for web live and kicking

Xbox Music Web

Xbox Music web version is here. While it was widely expected to launch earlier this week according to The Verge, but it’s live right now and new or registered Xbox users can sign up for a paid or free 30-day trial.

Xbox Music web shares the Windows 8-look of the Xbox 360’s interface, has an adaptive interface and requires an Xbox Live Gold membership (US$5/pm) on top of the monthly Xbox Music Pass (US$9.99). The trial period automatically upgrades to the full paid version of Xbox Music after the 30-days, just so you know.

Xbox Music “steams millions of songs” from a Windows 8 PC, Windows RT, Xbox 360 and Windows Phone. During the trial period, users can download their songs off Xbox Music and listen to their song selection for up to 10 hours per month. Paid users can download and play their purchased tracks forever.

There’s automatic syncing on Xbox Music, so songs purchased on Windows Phone, for example will automatically sync with the Xbox 360. Bad luck if you have an iPhone or Galaxy S4, as for now, there’s no Android or iOS app. For users in the supported regions, you can sign up to Xbox Music web right now. Please note that we take no responsibility for those who accidentally purchased a Justin Bieber track.
