OneDrive Xbox Music

Based on the source code on the Microsoft’s OneDrive website, Livesino discovered few months that Microsoft is creating a Music Locker service that will allow users to stream their own personal music collection from OneDrive. Users need to upload their music collection to OneDrive Music folder and they can enjoy their music via Xbox Music app on any of the devices. Xbox Music app is available on Windows, Windows Phone, Xbox, iOS, etc,. To get the full Xbox Music experience, move your music files into the Music folder on your OneDrive.

Meet your OneDrive Music folder. Upload your music files to this folder, so that you can play them via Xbox Music from any of your devices. You can also add files to this folder using the OneDrive app for your computer.

Today, they revealed that Microsoft will offer free 20GB of OneDrive storage to people who upload music on their OneDrive.

Easily store your music with Locker and access it wherever you go. Plus, get an extra 20 GB as soon as you upload your music.

Microsoft already offers 15GB of free storage to OneDrive users. In addition, they will gain few GBs when they enable Automatic photo upload in OneDrive mobile apps. Added to that, this new 20GB of free storage should please most of the music lovers who want to enjoy their music on the go via OneDrive music locker.

    Funny, still behind the 25GB early adopters got so not much incentive for them.

    • Duk3togo

      It sounds like additional 20gb, I want to do it to find out. Because then 25gb plus the 20gb woooo

  • Chris Jutting

    Awesome! I already keep my music on OneDrive, so this will be great! Now all I need is T-mobile to include it in their Music Freedom program and I’ll be all set.

      Well, I guess I will do just the same now that I have tons of storage due to my Office 365 Subscription.

        How did you get the “Enthusiast bonus” ? I’ve got a “Loyalty bonus” it’s 10GB + Free plan 15GB + Camera roll 3GB = 28GB. I don’t have the Music folder, should I manually make one, will that work ?

      • SolunaKitty

        I don’t have an Office 365 subscription, but I do have a permanent enthusiast bonus for some reason :D

  • TheCyberKnight

    Great!
    Now, if they could just release a decent music client app.
    Nothing impossible, just what the Zune client offered more than 5 years ago would be a good start.

  • Nuno Guerreiro

    Is this active already? If I upload some music to a music folder on the onedrive, would I get extra 20GB right now??

    • bigachx

      Wondering that myself!

  • robertwade

    But what happened to the 1TB that Office 365 subscribers were supposed to get? BTW, most of my music collection is already synced in the Music folder on OneDrive. I changed my default Library to that location LONG ago. However, until Xbox Music can quite screwing with metadata and just read the tags already in my music, it will be a useless app.

    • maxie

      its already active. checked my onedrive and i’ve got over 1 tb. now jsut need that extra 20gb…i’m being greedy here…jeje

    I still say – what took you so long? You have to move faster than this. And you have to come up with a decent media management program. X-Box Music is light years behind Zune and iTunes. I despise having five programs that do maybe 1/10 of what Zune did for me. I just want ONE program. Zune. Then, add synch to WP 8/8.1, restore channels, MixView, Social, video purchase, add audiobook support, app purchases, and add auto-playlists like WMP has, then we will be happy as users.

    • Rod Iron

      Zune and it’s software was nice. My original 30gb is still going strong.

  • fis

    Tested ,doesn’t work

    Whoops, I just started moving all my music onto my OneDrive yesterday (and the long sync process), but I put it in a different folder than the Music one. now I have to go move it

  • Sonny7

    Somebody has a guide on how to do this? I don’t have a music folder on Onedrive?

  • Robert Copestick

    Has anyone tried this yet? It does state at the beginning that only source code has been found though. That said I will still upload my MP3s to my Onedrive now to see what happens.

  • http://www.mainstreetchatham.com/ JimmyFal

    Does this work for folks that do NOT have an Xbox Music Subscription???

  • Jeffery Leo

    I uploaded 10 songs to the Music Folder, still doesn’t get the 20GB free. What happened to Microsoft.

  • Nicks

    Yeah, can’t figure this out. I made a music folder in my OneDrive. Music in this folder appears in the Xbox music app on my Surface RT, but not anywhere else. I suspect it’s not really.

  • hysonmb

    How is this the only site running this story, and it’s not showing up for any of us.
    All of the information I see on a OneDrive Music Locker is rumors that it was going to happen but no solid confirmation. You’d think this should have at least hit a couple of MS enthusiast sites.

  • Rod Iron

    Now this is something I would while walking around in the warehouse at work.
