Xbox Music MP3 tracks can now be added to OneDrive accounts

Microsoft will now allow Xbox Music users to store their local MP3 tracks to their OneDrive cloud storage account. This will allow users to play their music on the Xbox Music app for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1, along with the Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles and on the Xbox Music website.

In addition to MP3 tracks, this new service also supports audio files in M4A (AAC), and WMA formats. Microsoft says that this service is for any Xbox Music user and not just ones that have an Xbox Music Pass subscription. However, Microsoft says those subscribers will get something extra with this new feature: "100 GB of additional storage in OneDrive to save all the music you love." The service does require an Xbox Live account.

This service is available in the US, along with Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. There is an upper limit of 50,000 songs that can be stored. iOS and Android Xbox Music app users won't be able to play songs stored on OneDrive.

  • Is an app update needed?
  • nope. just switched to show streaming content in xbox music and it shows all my uploaded tracks
  • Can I know play my music in the background on my Xbox One? Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • The Music folder just created itself after logging into onedrive. Nice. I'll have to upload some music later. Do the songs have to be  matched up with Xbox music song data or will it just play my music as is?
  • Just checked my OneDrive, no music folder yet
  • Same
  • Unsupported country. Vote: https://xboxmusic.uservoice.com/forums/209733-xbox-music-feature-suggestions/suggestions/7252503-let-integration-with-onedrive-feature-be-available
  • It simply plays the songs as is so it is actually streaming your own music, no matching service.
  • Looks like track matching is gone. It no longer gives an option to "Add to Cloud Collection". This looks to be replacing that, as now there is no need for it. The only draw back is duplicates (OneDrive, hard drive, and Xbox Catalog tracks).
  • You can just place all your music in OneDrive and manage it through there. At least this is my plan which is 10% complete at the moment.
  • Nope it does not. its working already
  • I think there will be updated app coming shortly.  Switching to streaming only will show the "music matched" songs.  I tested this because I have mixtapes and those do not show up at all.  So this leads me the think they will be updating the apps.
  • How to turn back on streaming option?? Ma Xbox music changed to music and there is no option to turn on streaming! :(
  • Click the drop down that says "All Music" then Streaming.  But that should only show music that XBM matched previously.  At least thats what I'm discovering.
  • It really works, check the new folder called music on your OneDrive and add the music there, then check back on Xbox music where it says Streaming, YOUR MUSIC IS THERE! this is so nice it will save a lot of space on the phone :)
  • I don't know if you'll know but what's the overvault on OneDrive. It just showed, wad empty so I deleted it. Don't know if it was something important lol.
  • I have tried from two different computers.  The music is in the OneDrive folder and is uploaded to the cloud already.  Doesn't show up in Xbox Music on either computer or my windows phone.
  • Put the music into the new Music folder that was created automatically today!
  • It's been there for months
  • Can you cache this music for offline playback?!
  • Yes, just download the songs the same way you download from your Xbox cloud collection.
  • Now if only Onedrive would update to allow syncing of multiple folders across your computer/drives/partitions. All of my media is on a separate partition from my OneDrive and I can't move my music into that folder.
  • Have you tried creating a junction point named "Music" in the OneDrive folder that links to your real music folder?
  • I'd never heard of the process until a few months ago. I never looked into it, but I guess this would be the time to look into it. So I'm clear... My music is on an external drive. The OneDrive folder resides on my main hard drive which doesn't have nearly enough space to accomodate half of the music that's on the external drive. If I set up a Junction Point in "Music" in the OneDrive folder that links to the folder on my external hard drive, the data remains on my external yes? At no point is it added to c:/ ?
     
  • yyyyyyyeeeeessssss
  • Wow man MS is awesome!!
  • Finally! I was previously using Plex for this but it's quite buggy.
  • YYYYEEEESSSS indeed!!!!! I can finally stream my Tool albums!
  • Now this is a plus for Xbox music users! Good job MS.
  • This will be nice since I already have over 300GB of music on OneDrive. Hopefully this will be easier to control.
  • First time not for other Plattforms! :)
  • That's what
  • ...she said
  • Not good for this MS fanboy stuck with an Android phone due to work restrictions.
  • Haha. At work we ban Android, only WP or iPhone allowed.
  • Where you work. I wish to apply!
  • Now I can clean up phone space
  • Just what I was thinking
  • Happy to read not supported on ios and Android. After a long time tho..:)
  • Ooh that feel...
  • At the end of the day, that's not a great attitude to have. It makes us all seem like the stereotypical Apple fanboys. It is good for MS to be enabling their functionality on as many things as possible
  • wrong. yes microsft should release their services on all platforms but. and this is criticall, the best microsoft experience should always be on windows devices for obvious reasons.
  • So: *WRONG*, yes you're right, non-sequitor. Got it. :) Just joking, all kidding aside I never said anything about the best experience not being on windows. Considering what type of service this is, not having the streaming on the other platforms actually hurts it. I'm sure it's just a timing thing and that capability is an update away. If they simply never enabled this feature on the other platforms, that isn't the "best experience" on windows, thats an entire "different experience" which i find to be a very, *ahem*, different beast altogether. I have no horse in this race, but how bad must things be for us to be so damn glib about something so mundane as music streaming...
  • This is how you launch a service, multiple countries and not just "US only". Nice.
  • Those last two lines.
  • I came when I read that
  • Android and iOS deserve this.
  • Noooooo
  • Yeaaaa...!!
  • Lol
  • Since it also supports M4A and WMA, wouldn't a more accurate title be "You can now upload your personal music to OneDrive"?
  • I was worried about that too, until reading the article.
  • Yes
  • That was my thought, too. This isn't about saving Xbox Music Pass tracks to OneDrive, it's about storing your digital music collection (that you ripped, legally) on OneDrive and having those tracks show up in your collection.
  • Exactly! I uploaded my 5GBs of music from my 808 PureView to OneDrive and now I have my music on all of my devices. Oh man this is great! I used to have to take a device with me for music because I didn't want to stake up space on my main phone. I logged into my Win 10 laptop and BOOM, there is my music! Good times.....gooooooooodddd times. :)
  • Yeah! Suck it Android and Apple!
  • Lets celebrate:D
  • Microsoft is on fire today
  • I know right?! Loving all this awesome news!
  • Yuppp today was a great day enjoyed Windows central.
  • Time to start the uploads People! Let's break the servers!!
  • Lol!
  • Lol
  • I uploaded 5GBs already.
  • Awesome!!!!
  • finally!!!!! this is great news! I'll upload my old iTunes music library!  
  • Just sent in tip
  • I just saw a music folder in my onedrive folder.
  • Hmmm... have music in the folder (have for a while) -- but if its not on Xbox Music (the service) I'm not seeing it in my collection yet. Need an app update?
  • Xbox music->Songs->filter by "All music"/"Streaming". Music from onedrive will load slowly for the first time.
  • Yeah... Now I have some duplicates... The sorting will be fun...
  • Hmm... still no go. I'll give it some time.
  • me either, only thing showing up on Phone xBox Music is what I've purchased on phone or loaded to phone SD card. hoping it is just a matter of time.
  • Make sure you move your music to the "Music" folder that OneDrive will automatically create. It may take time for it to automatically create it. On my main account, it created it within about 5 minutes and on a secondary account, it did not create it after about 10 minutes so I will check back later. Once the folder is created, simply copy your music and in the xbox app, toggle to Show Music: Streaming and it will force it to check OneDrive. You can toggle it back later. Your music will start to load. I have done this and now my music is available on all of my devices with my main account.
  • I went to music.xbox.com -- there is a filter there for OneDrive only. When I flipped to it, I could see only a small fraction of my music. Refreshing the page revealed more. So it seems to be building slowly but surely :)
  • Slowly watch Apple as iTunes will never gain that capability.
  • Actually, they invented sometime in the future.......Microsoft just tine travelled and stole it‼
  • Lol I don't believe it.
  • No they will reinvent it, precisely. Lol.
  • Ohh haha like everything else right?
  • Yep. :D
  • iTunes has a music locker service already as part of its $25/year iTunes match. it includes matching (like xbox music before today) for songs in the library, and uploading to cloud lockers songs that are not.
  • Sorry, Apple already had a service very similar to this.
  • Lol huh?
  • Apple has had this for ages.
  • Finally!!!
  • Months of rumors, and the service finally launches! Thanks Microsoft!
  • Years actually. Former LiveSide website first discovered the "SkyDrive (then) music locker" back in December of 2012!
  • I've had all my music in a personal-created Music folder for months waiting for this to happen, and it finally slipped in. 
  • Hopefully this is not stream only.
  • Looks like the option for local storage is there too:
    "Can I download music from OneDrive?Yes. You can make the music from OneDrive available offline on your Windows 8.1 phone, PC or tablet. You can also download music files directly from your Music folder on OneDrive."
    https://music.xbox.com/onedrive
  • Yes, Microsoft are on fire today!
  • Great
  • This is great news for NL 925 users with just 15GB phone space. Now, I can delete all my songs in my phone and free up space.. hurray!!!
  • So I can listen to my music even if it isn't streamable through Xbox Music? I have a lot of video game soundtracks that aren't on Xbox Music that I would love to listen to on the go.
  • yep. just upload them to the music folder on onedrive
  • Make it available for India
  • This day can't get any better. Can it? :* ❤
  • If they release another Windows 10 build today for phones and PCs, it certainly can! :)
  • How does it works ???
  • Drop it in the OneDrive Music folder and it is in your XBox Music collection automagically like is part of the xbox subscription. It is that simple.
  • Again. Your region is not supported! WTF??? AM I LIVE IN NARNIA?
  • Narnia lmao
  • Aslan will save your a$$ don't worry :P
  • Narnia? Roflmao
  • Lol
  • India? :'(
  • I have lootttsss of music in onedrivr but none is showing in the Xbox music app
  • Been waiting for this 5ever
  • I was looking forward to this. People better have an Office 360 subscription to store all they want. 50,000 songs is by far not enough for me, I have close to 60,000 songs. Need flac support as well, but that has already been announced.
  • I've had my music stored on my OneDrive for at least a year now, under a "Music" folder at the main level. Does anyone know what I need to do to make this work at my end? Is Xbox Music also seeing playlists?
  • I've got a small number of songs in my OneDrive account too, how will this new feature be different? At the moment my OneDrive Music folder is just added into the Music library on my computer. Does this let me stream that music to all devices (Previously I could just play the local file that was synced down)
  • I'm in the same boat and for me, I just opened the app and it "just worked." To test, you can go to the web player (music.xbox.com) and pick "OneDrive only" from the "all music" dropdown. What I'm not clear about is: is the Music app smart enough to not create duplicates since my local library is already set to the OneDrive Music folder? Also: how are music-matched songs affected by this? Is music-matching going away? How do I tell the difference between a music-matched song and a OneDrive song? No idea. But I'm not gonna fret too much about it. One thing I decided to do though is re-create an empty local "Music" folder on my hard drive and change the default location in the Music app to that folder. In order to prevent duplicated "local" and "OneDrive" tracks showing up. This seems to have worked, for now.
  • I have an 'xxx-music' folder at another level. Do not like being forced to reorganize my folder structure. I think this should have been done with setting a folder property.
  • You can have subfolders in the music folder
  • Of course. My point is that I want a music folder with a name I choose and as a subfolder somewhere in a folder tree.
  • i had to seemingly tick music streaming (which was off) in xbox music app->settings on my lumia.
  • Extra storage space is not available to India users
  • Damn it!!!! When in India MSFT????
  • Jesus! This is a wonderful day!
  • Microsoft is giving us an awesome day ❤
  • Why MS always do step motherly treatment with India?????
  • That would be because a)people have less disposable income b)there is no blanket LTE / 3G internet to give users a nice and seamless experience C) same applies to internet speed there as well.
  • It's probably not Microsoft but the owners of the content you want to stream. They have to get agreements for various regions from the organzation that mange copyright holders that region.
  • Yeah that's probably the issue with Japan. Which is gutting as I'm emigrating there.
  • I would bet it has a lot to do with licensing agreements wiht other countries and the music rights, etc. You see the same sort of thing with the selections of movies being different on something like Netflix from region to region. Though they should deifnitely just give you the free 100 GB even without the music capability
  • Why isn't this feature available in India?
  • Well, because... Oh well, I better stop talking to myself. Doesn't look that good...
  • Yes so neat
  • Still missing some basic playlist-compability. Shit can't read .m3u or their own .wpl. That's just sad. I hope the new/improved music player in W10 will add this with the FLAC-support.
  • In India Xbox music and Xbox video not working.
  • What's the point, the Windows Phone app was so horrible that I finally had to switch (after more than one year trying to bear it) to Spotify.
    And now, I don't regret it. The catalog and the recommendations are SO much better, and the apps just works.
  • Sony made Spotify the default music service of the PS4. Might as well jump all in if you love it that much.
  • Oyeah this too btw ^^
  • Well I've never had problems with my Xbox Music app, and I have been using it since it first came about. Just saying, plus Spotify don't give you a bunch of Cloud Storage GB's for things like this. I tried Spotify, but this was better to me. Spotify is great don't get me wrong, but not for me, it have you all over the place, even on Android.
  • Now this is huge!  I've been hoping for this for a while.  Well, sense last week anyway.
     
  • MS launch Xbox Music in India soon...
  • Can I download from my Xbox Music subscription into my OneDrive instead of my phone / Xbox ?
  • I'm not sure what I'm missing. I've had all of my music stored in my one drive and steamed to ask if my windows devices for several months with no issues. How it's this different? I'm confused.
  • Microsoft now lets you stream the music through its Xbox Music app on Phone and PC whereas before you had to play each track individually through OneDrive.
  • Hmm... I've been streaming them through Xbox music on my PC, laptop, windows phone and Xbox One all directed to a folder on my Onedrive for months now. I've never played music directly from a Onedrive folder.
  • Would be better if you could sync your devices with OneDrive.
  • For the people who were bitchin about the fact that Microsoft was better on all other platforms expect its own, embrace the fact that this will work only on MS products. Great news here !
  • What's it like uploading music to OneDrive? It take a week to upload 40 gig of tunes??
  • So what if there isn't a Music folder in your OneDrive as others seem to have? Can you just create a standard folder and call it 'Music', or do you need to wait / contact support?
  • Answer: The folder just suddenly got created after I posted. So either playing with XBox music local/streaming filter did it, or somebody is watching...
  • Oooh spooky :P...
  • This amazing, and perfect for my GF who doesn't pay for a music pass but has large personal collection!!
  • But why are you telling this?
  • Showing off? -_-
  • But he has one.
  • So only US ?
     
  • No, read the article.
  • xbox music and video y u no in india
  • I'm sitting at 622gb of storage now. Plenty of space for me.
  • I have been waiting for this since my 920.  Glad to see MS is starting to bring some really awesome features to the OS. Now just waiting for an update to the Windows 10 Technical preview.
  • Good stuff
  • A limit of 50,000 songs? That is still ~15,000 under what I would need.
  • Awww man, of course I have all my music in FLAC..... Time to re-encode everything!
  • Lol, that sounds fun... Not :P. Don't envy ya.
  • Oh yeah, lots of character building going on over here!
  • why? Flac is supported with win 10. Just wait for update, lol
  • What a day ... 
  • How do I get this additional 100GB storage?
  • It's automatic if you're a Xbox music subscriber. I have mines already. I just checked.
  • After a spate of slow bad days, everyone needed the uplift today has bought! I just hope this momentum continues!
  • interesting, love that. I have now find an utility to my 1 TB of Onedrive. If you can stream your MP3 throught Onedrive now, do we really need Music Pass now ?
  • Got my 100GB! Nice!
  • So we need to get a premium account on Xbox music ?? If not how can i get my 100 gb ??
  • You have to be a Xbox Music Subscriber in order to get it.
  • By purchasing Xbox Music Pass...
  • If i purchase Xbox music pass once then I will get 100GB forever?
  • I suppose that as long as you keep being a Xbox Music Pass user, then yes…
  • Can anyone tell me how to upload all songs to onedrive?
  • Go here https://onedrive.live.com/?id=music - it will create a "Music" folder for you (or your can create it manually at the root level of your OneDrive)
  • How is the limit to 50.000 songs when OneDrive has a limit only up to 20.000 files per account? I know that you can zip the files, but its kinda weird.
  • The 20.000 files limit is for business users only. Private customers have unlimited file count (or at least far more than 20.000 files)
  • Another thing to now back up
  • Though the 100GB OneDrive storage is a great perk, I don't see how this is better than just buying Office 365 and thus getting unlimited OneDrive storage (Of course other than the streaming duh)...
  • Copying everything now!
  • Can anyone tell me how to upload all songs to onedrive?
  • Just drag and drop
  • Shit! It's going to take atleast 1 hour :(
  • an hour? Try about 1000 hours for my collection.
  • So many duplicates!!! If they were matched already, prepare for a nightmare that you can't seem to fix.
  • If you go to XBox music on the web and choose settings, there is a "remove duplicates" option which looks like it is intended to remove matched music that is also in OneDrive. That said, I've just turned it on and it doesn't seem to have made much difference yet!
  • Microsoft is crushing it today!
  • Ah man. Microsoft you is suck. I on android now and music pass subscriber. I no get no love :(
  • Pretty sure this feature works across devices.
  • No, only for MS devices. Check the source link, it's in the FAQS.
  • This is amazing. Finally a winning Xbox music feature... If it works. Hope they bring this to the Android app.
  • I have no use for Google apps now. Been using CloudMusik, now I can delete it.
  • I just want to say this is AWESOME NEWS! Especially if you're all in on MS ecosystem. I will be transferring and managing all my music through the OneDrive app in the next couple of days.
  • Thank you MS. You just sold another Xbox music subsicrtion (I already have two, but whats another one in support of this!). I'm very happy this has happend, like take as long as you need with that flagship happy. That's how important playing my music anywhere is to me. I'll be busy this weekend. You win the internet today with this MS. Good work.  
  • I see no music folder in my Onedrive. Can someone tell me the proper way to do this? Just drag and drop my music folder into one drive?
  • Fire up an XBox music app on one of your devices.  
  • Create a music folder.
  • It seemed to appear after switching filter modes in the XBox Music app for me (see comment above).
  • So just drag and drop?
  • Go here https://onedrive.live.com/?id=music - it will create a "Music" folder for you
  • I'm so happy yeah
  • It seems a bit more subtle than that: Music I have previously loaded into a folder on my OneDrive I entitled "Music" shows up and it will play the music that is in it, but it does not seem that it will play in "album" order, but only in randomized order.  I'll have to upload some music to that folder later today to see if this is an artifact of having put music in there prior to today or if not having an XBox Music Pass brings confers fewer advantages than just another 100 gigs of space. 
  • And just like that my reliance on the big G reduced to almost nothing. Cheers, MS!
  • Started uploading my music but no extra 100 gigs yet...
  • Do you have an Xbox Music Pass?
  • I do.
  • They should've shown up already, give it a few minutes or then contact Xbox through their website or Twitter support.
  • I figured out why.  My XBox music and Live Gold accounts are US.  My Office 365 account (including OneDrive) are Canadian.
  • I wonna 100gigs for free. Just added some songs, but I still have my 50 gigs available
  • Waiting for my country to be in the list.
  • I have a lot of "Unknown Artist" issues. Almost half my albums are under Unknown Artist but when I put the same albums on my SD card in my phone, it shows the artists just fine. I hope it is just a hiccup and not a sign of what's coming...
  • Have you checked your songs metadata?
  • Same here, all metadata is fine and also on OneDrive the files and metadata shows fine.
  • Not in Hungary :(
  • Nice!  
  • Hmmm...didn't work for me. Turned on streaming and then uploaded files, then checked XBOX music and nothing.
  • Hope this stops the duplicates
  • Yay!!!! I'm doing this right meow.
  • Not working for me....
  • Same here in U.S. :(
  • Sweet... Years ago I ripped all my cd's to mp3. I have GB's of tunes.
  • Do this for FLAC files and I'll be impressed.
  • Holy crap yes. Moving all my music over now
  • Can someone please verify this. I placed an album in the new Music Folder on OneDrive. When I play the album my live shows artist name moving around. But know it's showing a picture of the artist like the old Zune. Haven't seen that in over a year.
  • It's been this way for quite some time.
  • Sorry, but somehow it hasn't been that way on my ATT 1520 or 830. So I've been without this for awhile.
  • I wish this was accessible over phone as well via xbox music app. I guess that wont happen till the one drive app allows folders to be downloaded on phone or SD card.
  • I need guidance in this. Went to the music app on my phone and switched to streaming. But it's saying it's lonely there, connect to computer and blah blah blah. Also, being released in multiple countries is it same as setting phone region to those countries?
  • Can you stream those mp3s from Onedrive though?
  • Always could, just one @ a time though.
  • why not just use xbox music app? its literally available anywhere you go where there is internet there is xbox music lol you can also make the songs available offline on w.e device has the music app installed :)
  • So, where are all of my Beatles albums? 
  • Gold or sliver account
  • I can't get it to work with my windows phone, but my Windows 8.1 desktop app works... Hmm...   Have any of you got this to work on your Lumia devices?
  • make sure the folder created on OneDrive is called 'Music' then drag and drop or upload all your MP3s there. now go to your xbox music app on the phone click on songs and where it says showing: try switching between all music and just streaming
  • One of the top 2 worst apps in the store.
  • How do you sync songs downloaded on phone to onedrive?
  • I had a Music folder in there for a long time and this wasn't working for me... Just checked OneDrive and I have a folder called "Music 1". I'll have to contact support about this I suppose. Don't want to have to move it all to that new folder.
  • wow this is huge, and works!
  • Microsoft is fokking goed bezig!!! I heart Microsoft!!!
  • Now I love the exclusivity
  • What a freakin joke. Music that I own now says I have to have an Xbox music pass? to listen to it. WTF, and half of my own music doesn't even show up after I dropped some in the new folder.  I'm sorry I AM DONE with Xbox music When Xbox music can get off of their collective butts and get it right, call me! How many years have they played around with this?
  • I think you misunderstood? did you read the article carefully, or at all? I am NOT an xbox music pass owner, and I just created a 'Music' folder on Onedrive in my laptop, uploaded 5 local MP3s, I then went to my Xbox Music app on my phone, clicked on Songs, then selected streaming music only instead of all music, and the 5 songs were there. try again.
  • Does it work on winfows 10? Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • Awesome!
  • OHHHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYY GOOOOOOOOOOOOD i love it!
  • This is a serious quantum leap forward and a big reason to dial into the Windows eco-system. Very nice job. A couple quick questions: How do I upload album art to MP3s without it? Also, any thoughts on whether Microsoft will ever release a video, podcasts, or music app for Roku? I listen to shows quite often (Windows Weekly) on my TV while I'm prepping dinner or cleaning, but I'd love to have that convenience. Afterall, they are all about being crossplatform these days. Again, great job Microsoft. I have been a WP user for about 16 months and have felt totally frustrated and largely disconnected from my music, until now. Great job.
  • What is the advantage for Xbox music pass users i.e. for music that isn't bought, compared to how the service works now?
  • This gives you the opportunity to play many sound files that are not carried by the Xbox music store. For example, I listen to tons of lectures on MP3 and now I have access to them on several devices for free. Does that help answer your question?
  • Thanks for your answer. I only download music from the Xbox music store so I guess it doesn't make a difference for me then. Each time I download new music I would need to add it manually to the music folder in OneDrive.
  • A decade after the Xbox and over a hundred countries including mine are still not supported, nevermind things like music, video or even Bing. Great job Microsoft!!!
  • This is huge!!! So damn happy about this!!! Plus with 1.3 TB of OneDrive space, I'm pretty set.
  • Word!!! I second this.
  • Does this show album art in Xbox music for my own files too. I uploaded some Beatles albums to Onedrive including the art, but the art is not showing in the Music app. (Beatles albums are not in Xbox Music's catalogue and so it will not have matched them.)
  • Just needed a little patience. Looked again today, and all the album art is showing up on the web and on the phone. This is pretty impressive. May we have Sonos integration too please. I listen to most of my digital music through Sonos. I would be even more impressed if Sonos could read my OneDrive music folder, and support an Xbox music pass.
  • Is this available now. Rust is the best way to do this? Add the music to my HDD One Drive music folder and left them such up, or up load the music directly to one drive. Since my One Drive folder is in my C:\ Users folder on a SSD with limited storage, the first might not be practical.
  • It's FANTASTIC!!! I can now play all my music that is not available on Xbox Music. Groups like The Beatles, AC/DC and Metallica. Thank you Microsoft.
  • Well, I see the folder on my sp3 app but when I try to upload my personal music folder it wont do it. On my SP3, I created a music folder and I see the music on my Xbox one but don't see it on my phone. This is typical MS.
    Edit:
    Just figured it out, you can upload whole folders you have to do it by track, how fucking lame! I have 30 GB of music it will take me forever.
  • Am I missing something here? I understand this is great for phones since it doesn't require a sub, but both my PC and tablet already show all my music. Is it just to free space and put more stuff in the cloud?
  • Omg, Xbox music locker is finally here!
  • Why is this service tied to XBox Music and XBox Live account and why only selected countries? It should be available worldwide for anyone with a Microsoft account that is tied with OneDrive and other Microsoft ecosystem.
  • because xbox is a bigger brand than onedrive there has long been an xbox music app native to xbox 360s.
  • People still use XBM? Wow.
  • Why wouldn't they?
  • Now, at least on my Lumia 630, works great..
  • I tried to copy over 19gb of my music and its telling me I don't have enough space? I have 10TB according to OneDrive, though.
  • Check carefully, it might be 10GB xD
  •    It's about damn time. Ummm, I don't see it when I log into OndDrive. Is it a gradual roll-out?
  • Awesome!!!!!
  • Awesome! It worked excellent ... Had tried putting (a month or so ago) a song.. and when I saw this article, went to the app, filtered song with Online Music, and there was that song (that i don't like anyways but was for trying).. Now i'm uploading my 50GB of music to OneDrive (will take a while but I can then select which songs, or album want to have on my Lumia.. That's great.. With this i'll cancel my Spotify subscription.. By the way i'm in Argentina  
  • Wow, still uploading all my music to OneDrive\Music, but I can already download and stream The Beatles! Woohoo!!! Now I can save my storage space for Movies!
  • No India???
  • Hell yeah! It's working!
  • What's left is to be able to play this mp3 via the web Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Great news...however those of you out there thumbing your collective noses at iOs (and possibly Android) for not being able to access this music through XBOX music...you are right. You can't access your newly uploaded music through the XBOX music app. You can (and have been able to for quite some time) access it from an app called Cloud Beats on iOS. The XBOX music app for iOS is horrendous (worse than it is on WP 8.1). Cloud Beats is missing the ability to do playlists but otherwise it's a great app. In fact it was one of the first apps I purchased after going back to iOS after being a WP user for 4 years. It is great to see MS utilizing its services across platforms and I think this capability will come to iOS and Android in the very near future.
  • IDK why last line in the article made me happy and smile :D
    Hahahah
  • I WANNA KNOW WHY XBOX MUSIC KEEPS REMOVING MY GOD DAMN SONGS IN MY PLAYLISTS!!
  • Any one got extra 100 gigs of space?
  • My collection is in Apple Lossless still .m4a files I wonder if these would stream in loss less from the Xbox one, or the web player ?
  • It can be added from longtime ago but there is no music folder even I create one still not showing at Xbox music app
  • It can be added from longtime ago but there is no music folder even I create one still not showing at Xbox music app and no update :(
  • does nothing. i just constantly sends me to a music folder on one drive. i've added musc and get nothing. This service is not very streamlined. There's no web user interface. I click on files and it tries to download them. on xbox 360 nothing shows up. and in onedrive the files show up as just a massive list in a music folder. i even deleted the folder and followed the link in the comment section, then added music, nothing. Right now i'm sticking with google play as i already have all my music in it. And i couldn't find any matching services that saves me from uploading one onedrive/xbox music so that's disappointing. even the image in this article is different. when i go to https://music.xbox.com/collection, it gives me no artists or genre tabs, just "import" i go to "Import" and it takes me to the one drive folder that is already full of music. And no 100 gbs either. Still at 33.1 gb. so this has been a total fail for me.
  • very good.
