Following a year filled with shutting down service outlets and misaligning feature branding in the name of usability, Microsoft could be poised to launch a new online portable for Xbox Music.
According to sources who talked exclusively with The Verge, sometime next week Microsoft will update Xbox.com to allow for Xbox Music Pass streaming. That’s a feature that we haven’t seen since Microsoft shut down the Zune.net music portal last fall.
No other details about the new Musix.Xbox.com have leaked, though we’ll of course be keeping an eye out for it now. Microsoft is already planning on launching an updated version of Xbox Music for Windows 8 devices tomorrow, alongside Windows 8.1.
Last fall, Microsoft announced that Xbox Music would also be coming to iOS and Android devices. We’ve yet to hear anything about those applications since.
