[Windows Phone app] Xbox Music

Xbox Music for Windows PhoneMicrosoft has released Xbox Music as a standalone app on the Windows Phone Store. By releasing it as standalone app, this allows Microsoft to release updates for the app in a quick an efficient manor instead of having to release it within full system updates. This is something that Google has done with several of their apps on Android.

You can download the app directly on your device through the Windows Phone Store or by using the following link:

Download Download from Windows Phone Store
Price Free
Requirements Windows Phone 7.5; Windows Phone 8.0; Windows Phone 8.1
Press the Search searchbutton on your Windows Phone, tap Vision vision and then scan the following barcode by pointing your device camera toward it

Currently Xbox Music is part of the Music+Videos hub on Windows Phone. Right now, the big difference is that the Music+Videos hub on Windows Phone is the spot you want to go to access the music that you have purchased through the Windows Phone Store. The Xbox Music app is completely useless unless you have signed up for the Xbox Music Pass, which will allow for streaming music to your mobile device.

Once you have the streaming subscription (which will cost you $9.99 per month after a 30 day trial), you can stream as much music as you want and even download music for offline access. You can get all of the info you might want on your artists, get "Radio" shuffles of songs, and even create/edit playlists which will sync across your connected devices.
