Android Central

It's here, but it's short on some features next to the Windows Phone version

Microsoft has today made their Xbox Music streaming service available to Android device owners for the first time. The app requires an Xbox Music account to use, but essentially it gives you access to all the same music that Windows, Xbox and Windows Phone users have had for some time now. But, while it's great that Microsoft has made it available, it's lacking in a couple of key areas when compared to its Windows Phone sibling. It also doesn't seem to like the idea of tablets, since the Play Store is highlighting a lack of compatibility with them all.

 

 

 

 

The first of those is the lack of artist based radio. It's not the end of the world, but it does mean you're basically limited to searching for music to listen to. The bigger omission, at least for now, is offline music. Unless you're connected to an Internet connection, you won't be able to listen to your music. Microsoft has said it will be hitting iOS and Android in "coming months" but for some, the lack of it now could be a deal breaker.

Otherwise it's not a bad app to use. It's not exactly Holo, but it looks pretty nice, with a distinct flavor of Xbox to it. It's not mimicking the Windows Phone app, though, so it's more within the user experience we're familar with on Android. Grab the app for free now from the Play Store at the link above. Besides not liking tablets, it will also only be available in regions supported by Xbox Music.
