Xbox Music app for Xbox One gets 92,000 music videos today

Microsoft adds thousands upon thousands of music videos to Xbox Music app today.

Do you enjoy music videos? Microsoft is hoping that you do, as the company today launched 92,000 new music videos for the Xbox Music app on Xbox One. The announcement was made in a blog post on the Xbox Wire.

The Xbox Music app on Xbox One removes the barrier between songs and videos, making it so that music videos will automatically stream in high-definition when you play a song that has an accompanying video. You'll need an Xbox Music Pass ($10/month) to access the videos.

Xbox Music is Microsoft's streaming service that is similar to Spotify. You can stream millions of songs for free through your browser, or pay $10 month for unlimited and ad-free streaming. Xbox Music is also available today on iOS, Android, and Windows Phones.

The Titanfall March Xbox One update is scheduled to go live sometime today, bringing with it a host of changes to the party system and the user interface itself. Check out this video for more on what to expect from the update.

How was MS supposed to know that most of these people cant afford $2.25 a week lol

Awesome, now if only this little thing called Youtube didn't exist, people might actually use this. Leave it to MS to charge people to watch videos they can get for free on their phones, computers, or literally anywhere that's connected to the internet...except the X1, which already charges you just to get on the internet at all.

This still isn't a video game Microsoft. Do you need some help identifying what is and isn't a video game? If you wouldn't see it on Nintendo's console then it isn't a game.

Another great reason to be an xbox owner. Love the music service. Definitely worth the $10 monthly fee if you are a regular purchser of music.

@eternity888 ummm...have you tried "search"? Xbox Music has a larger library of music than Spotify.

@750sho  actually no it doesnt its play the mp3s which can be set up as playlist or radio, and if the mp3 has a video that plays instead all of this while being snapped ps4 doesnt do that

kingkoopa009
kingkoopa009

@Patohua1  its not what ur paying for it like rhapsody and spotify but now if the mp3 has a video it plays that instead of scrolling backgrounds like the other songs, and ur paying for ondemand, offline downloading on serval devices, streaming on any devices and cloud connected playlist, youtube doesnt do that

@mufz_ wait they charge you for music videos that are free all over the internet?

@glacius_x  and Sony's totally FREE music streaming service like this one is called what again?

@berserker66666  you mean that website that barely runs if at all on the PS4?

@ahpuck @750sho  youttube doesnt have a dedicated smartglass app that allows you to control the music with out interupting what ur doin on the xbox one, like playing titanfall and changing to the new rick ross album without a hitch

kingkoopa009

@shinjuki @GrenadeLauncher  obviously a troll neither system is flooded with games and most are on both platforms havent seen a game to interesting thats not on both, yes u do have indie titles but we have project spark beta just opened up

@Patohua1 @mufz_  yes if u call stealing music free, xbox music is great on windows devices like phones and tablets. Everything itunes in their library we pretty much have and some and its available to download or stream on release date, without paying for indiviual song i believe that xbox music has 28+million songs in the library spotfy has like 20 mil

You seem confused so let me explain. They charge you for a service which includes high music quality and now high def video which can be organised via customisable playlists which are beautifully presented on your Tv. The convenience of having it incorporated with xbox is worth it. Plus im a person who pays for music as the artists I appreciate are worth spending my money on.

@Tomcat2007 Dude, this isn't about console vs console. This s*** is free everywhere else on the internet. Who the hell would pay for music videos?

@GinsuVictim @Tomcat2007  sux for u xbox music is why i dont have those, ondemand and offline use on my surface and windows phone and on demand streaming on my xbox one and any other device i pick up.

Because Xbox is a media hub for your living room. If you use the xbox in this way it is fantastic!

@Tomcat2007 Between Grooveshark, Pandora, Plex, etc, I see no reason to pay for music through my Xbox.

Tomcat2007

@GinsuVictim @Tomcat2007  apparently a lot of people.  Just look at all the streaming music companies that make a ton of money each year like Spotify so there is definite demand.  if you value the best audio and video quality then you will find it more consistently on a music streaming service vs youtube which is hit and miss.  Now people may say you should be able to get this particular service w/o xbox live gold and i can't disagree  but if you already have gold and want quality streaming music for your living room this service would make sense to a lot of people.
