T-Mobile has added Xbox Music, along with 13 others, to their collection of Music Freedom offerings. Streaming music on devices is a popular way of consuming music for most smart phone users, but this can eat up a data plan fast. With Music Freedom, T-Mobile customers can stream music and the music streaming data won’t go against the monthly data allotment. This is great for consumers who are looking for an affordable way to stream music on their devices while away from WiFi.
Xbox Music joins the ranks of other popular music services like Google Play Music, SoundCloud, Rhapsody, Pandora, Grooveshark, iHeartRadio, iTunes Radio, Slacker, Songza, Spotify, and many more. T-Mobile customers can choose the music streaming service which works best for them; it could be Apple, Google, Microsoft, or a third party. Customers don’t have to worry about using too much data and can relax while listening to their favorite bands, on their favorite service.
Microsoft has been quiet about Xbox Music for some time now. There have been no major features or news concerning the service. Rumors have been circulating that Xbox Music will pair with OneDrive to offer a music ‘locker’ service where users can stream their personal collection anywhere. This service has yet to be confirmed by Microsoft, but there have been many clues that it is in the works. Either way, Xbox Music users can now enjoy streaming their music on T-Mobile free of data charges.Further reading: Microsoft, T-Mobile, Xbox Music
