Posted on the 19 October 2012 by Yogeshvashist98 @YogeshVashist98

It is not the first time Microsoft looking to break into the digital music business. The software giant has taken a step beyond the sale of music for download and has announced the launch of a streaming service Spotify European style.

Xbox Music, which is currently available to users of the Xbox 360, will expand next week,

coinciding with the launch of Windows 8, all devices with the new operating system from Microsoft. Next year will also be accessible from Android and Apple devices.

The service begins with a catalog of 30 million tracks and 70,000 music videos. Users can listen to music for free and unrestricted exchange for advertising. If you want to remove the ads, you must subscribe for $ 9.99 a month.

Spotify had in late July with over 15 million active users and 4 million subscribers. The Swedish company put limitations on free (no more than five reproductions of an issue except for users who take more than six months in service and no more than 10 hours of listening per month) last year, following pressure from the record and in an attempt to increase the paid subscribers.
