Microsoft has updated its Xbox Music app to allow users to stream tracks uploaded to the OneDrive cloud storage platform.
Users can upload unto 50,000 tracks OneDrive, so it gives users the opportunity to access their entire music libraries without having to store the files locally.
The initiative is similar to the Google Play Music tool, which enables users to access their files on a huge array of connected devices.
The offering is designed to supplement the Spotify-like subscription-based Xbox Music Pass, which gives users the chance to stream music that doesn’t feature in their collection. Users will be able to create combined playlists from music stored in OneDrive and available through Xbox Music Pass.
Microsoft is even offering users 100GB of extra OneDrive storage if they subscribe to Xbox Music Pass, which leaves plenty of space for uploading files to the cloud.
The new functionality is available in: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and US.
