Xbox One Has Free Ad-supported Xbox Music Streaming

Posted on November 6, 2013 AT 07:53am

Xbox One will feature free music streaming via Xbox Music for Gold subscribers, although users will occasionally have to watch adverts, according to Microsoft head of product planning Albert Penello.

Penello’s statement was made in response to a Twitter user who asked if Xbox Music on Xbox One would be similar to Windows 8.1 and the Xbox Music website. Xbox One users won’t need an Xbox Music pass to stream music, but they “will get periodic ads,” according to Penello.
