No Ad-supported Streaming Of Xbox Music For Xbox One Owners(Updated)

Xbox One Xbox Music

Xbox Director of Product Planning Albert Penello confirmed on Twitter that Xbox One owners who are Xbox Live Gold subscribers will have access to free Xbox music streaming supported with ads. This is similar to free music streaming on Windows 8 PCs and music.xbox.com. But this differs from Xbox 360, where users must hold an Xbox Live Gold subscription ($50/year) and an Xbox Music Pass ($10/month) to access the streaming service.

We are not sure whether there will be a limit for users to 10 hours of free music streaming per month after six months, and you can pay a monthly fee to get unlimited access.

Update: Albert today tweeted that he was wrong about the above information. Free ad supported streaming is not coming to Xbox One.

I was wrong about Music on XboxOne: You get 15 free song plays then need Music Pass for ad-free streaming. No ad-supported streaming. Sorry!

But don’t forget, Xbox Music supports Play-To of all your music directly from your PC.
