Xbox Music Declares Its Independence from Windows Phone OS, Arrives In The Windows Phone Store
And just like that, the Xbox Music experience on Windows Phone is no longer tied to the platforms glacial update cycle. As of now, users can download Xbox Music on Windows Phone from the Windows Phone Store.
Simply put, Xbox Music on Windows Phone seeks to bring a first class music experience to users of Microsoft’s own mobile operating system. As the previous experience was tied to Windows Phone, it’d been almost a year since users saw any new feature additions. In that time, the company had already managed to ship apps on iOS and Android that made Windows Phone’s built-in app look like child’s play.
Xbox Music on Windows Phone features artist bios, access to user’s cloud music collections, offline music playback, playlist creation, playlist syncing and access to Xbox Music’s Radio streaming tools.
Like its other counterparts, Xbox Music on Windows Phone does require that users have an Xbox Music Pass.
