Xbox Music now going live all over the world


Xbox Music app will come pre-installed on Windows 8 and will offer its services in 22 countries for subscription music and 15 for free streaming.

With Windows 8 set to launch in just a few days the service is now going live in multiple locations around the world.

Chriss from Norway has dropped us a line to let us know the app has been lit up in Norway, where he now enjoys unlimited streaming.

Xbox Music will offer a catalogue of over 30 million tracks, and will allow users to make playlists, discover new music, and purchase and download music.

Has the service gone live in your area? Let us know below.

Thanks Chriss for the tip.

    • Beezer

      I think you’re hoping for a little too much there. You need to have some movie theatres, and legal music shops to at least hope to have music/video work there.

    XBox music seemed to be running in the US as well. I got an update this morning on my laptop running Windows 8 Pro. I noticed that some of the songs had a little cloud logo next to them, but I can’t figure out what this is for yet.

    • pws

      the cloud means that the file was not downloaded locally… but can be streamed….

    Unfortunately some songs only have a preview version. They can’t be streamed as a full version and can’t be added to My Music. You have to purchase those songs to listen to them in full length.

  • Michael

    Austria works too! On win8 working, no WP7.5 and no Xbox

    • Daniel

  • Jens Veraa

    Don’t think it’s available in Belgium. Is also is not on my Windows 8 pc.. WIll I get it automaticaly , download .. ? How ?

  • Beezer

    Haven’t noticed anything different on my Win 8 machine running with Canadian region. I’ve always been able to select an Xbox Music Pass option. Are you guys able to select the free streaming option?

  • Scubadog

    I’m assuming you at least have to have the RTM version of Windows 8, since there haven’t been any Store updates for those of us running the Release Preview.
