Xbox One Will Not Offer Free Xbox Music Ad-Supported Streaming

Microsoft clears that no free ad-supported streaming model of Xbox Music will come to Xbox One in the near future. Instead, a trial of 15 songs or 30 days free Xbox Music will come with next generation gaming console. Microsoft’s head of product planning for Xbox One, Albert Penello, admits his fault

He states in his tweet , "I was wrong about Music on XboxOne: You get 15 free song plays then need Music Pass for ad-free streaming. No ad-supported streaming. Sorry!"

Microsoft issued the following statement in response of Penello's:

"Enjoying Xbox Music on Xbox One does require an Xbox Music Pass, similar to Xbox 360. Users will receive 15 free song plays before having to enter their Music Pass. New users can also sign up for a free 30 day trial. With a Music Pass, you have access to your personal music collection and can stream unlimited, ad-free music. You can use Xbox Music alongside other activities on Xbox One, including games, through Snap mode. Xbox Music is an all-in-one music service that does offer an ad-supported, free streaming option on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and online at Music.Xbox.com."
