Xbox Music service is about to enter the airwaves for free. Its apps on Android and iOS are also about to undergo their debut. Microsoft and Xbox have thus thrown a challenge to competitors such as Spotify and Rdio. Spotify did make some waves when it came on the scene some half a decade ago but all that is about to change.
For half a year the web streaming by Xbox will be absolutely free. Then the company will tighten the noose. The Xbox music ticket will be worth $10 per month or $100 per annum. However, all this will occur online and it doesn’t count for offline activities. The expansion of Microsoft’s Xbox Music service is a gift for the ears of billions around the world.
The GM of Xbox Music spoke of how every month or so the applications will be renewed. Music is a means of catharsis and is the least harmless of entertainment pursuits. It literally soothes the savage beast within man. And so this service will serve to calm and cool down the violent and vicious world we find ourselves in today.
Meanwhile, Microsoft will also be introducing the world to its Xbox One sometime in November. The foray Microsoft has made into music and the musical is an extension and diversification of its abilities. It will prove to be a profitable venture in the future.
