Microsoft has revealed that the new Xbox One Xbox Music service will be a free advertisement supported streaming service and that Xbox One owners will not need to subscribe to the Xbox music service to listen to music from the new console.
The news of the new Xbox one feature was announced earlier this week by Albert Penello, Microsoft’s head of product planning for new Xbox One console. Who took to Twitter to announce the addition of the new Xbox music streaming service application within the Xbox One console.
