Microsoft have announced that their Spotify-esque streaming music service -- the aptly titled Xbox Music -- has rolled out across mobile platforms and that music can now be streamed for free via web browsers.
"Today is a big day for Xbox Music: we’re releasing on iOS and Android and we’re also adding free streaming to our Web player, making Xbox Music and its 30 million tracks available on millions more devices and for free to anyone with a Web browser," the company announced on Xbox Wire.
"Xbox Music is coming up on its one-year anniversary and we’ve learned a lot in that time. Xbox Music is now, more than ever, a service that spans across all kinds of devices—phones, tablets, PCs and TVs—and unites artists with their fans through one common platform."
If you want to use the Android and iOS apps, you'll need an Xbox Music Pass (you'll require one to use the service on your Xbox), which will cost £8.99/$9.99 per month. As it stands currently, the XMP gives you less than Spotify Premium as you can't create custom radio stations or offline playlists, but Microsoft have said that such services will be patched in at a later date.
You can, however, now create web playlists, and Xbox Music search results will be added to the steaming pile of mediocrity that is Bing search.
