Microsoft has expanded its Xbox Music streaming service beyond the Xbox 360, Windows Phone, Windows 8, and the web, with the app now available for Android devices and any Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 6 and higher. As reported by Engadget, streaming through the web is now entirely free for the first six months, but the mobile apps require a paid Xbox Music Pass subscription to take advantage of the service.
Xbox Music functions much like other streaming services such as Spotify, Rdio, Google Play Music: All Access, and Apple iTunes Radio, letting you play music on-demand and create playlists for later listening sessions. Unfortunately, the new iOS and Android apps do not currently let you save and play tracks offline, although that functionality is expected to arrive "in the coming months."
Xbox Music can be downloaded now for free from iTunes and the Google Play store. The Xbox Music Pass costs $9.99 a month or $99.90 for an entire year, or you can try out the paid service free of charge for 30 days.
