Xbox Music already matching music

Windows 8 is likely being installed in its millions all over the world, and some cool announced features are already popping up.

One of them is Xbox Music, which it appears is already scanning libraries and matching them up with Microsoft’s library of 30 million songs.

Presumable if a user were to roam on another PC they will be able to stream their “matched” music library on the other device also, and for example also from an Xbox 360.

Other statuses include

  • Unmatched (available only here)
  • Matched (available here and in the XBOX Music Cloud for streaming to other devices.
  • Streaming Only (download here to listen offline)

The service so far does not seem to require a paid music pass, but then a number of hours of free streaming is included with very Windows 8 purchase.

Thanks Charles for the tip.
