Microsoft Unveils Xbox Music Details

Following its announcement at June’s E3, Microsoft has now released full details surrounding its launch of Xbox Music, Variety reports. The system aims to combine numerous digital music services into one platform. Xbox Music plans to be launched tomorrow.

Xbox Music will feature a streaming service, a Pandora-type radio service called Smart DJ, an mp3 store and a music video player. Following its launch, Xbox Music will be available through the Xbox 360 console, and then will become available on Windows 8 and Windows RT PCs, tablets and phones later this month.

Though none of this Microsoft technology is technically new, the company is confident that the convenience and centrality will increase popularity.

The global streaming catalog of Xbox Music will include over 30 million songs (18 million available in the U.S.).
