Cloud-based music collections in OneDrive with Windows 10
Music Locker feature coming with the universal Xbox Music app
One of the new features Microsoft was rumored to be working on was officially confirmed to be coming soon to Windows 10 devices. With a brand new universal Xbox Music app working on all devices, users will be able to store music collections in the cloud (OneDrive) and then listen and modify playlists from all other devices running Windows 10.
This ‘Music Locker’ feature will significantly improve the current Music app making it far more capable than now. The upcoming version was briefly explained to the audience at the event on January 21st. After adding a song in a playlist on the cloud, it automatically shows up on all devices having the new universal music app integrated with OneDrive. The amount of music users will be able to store in Cloud could be limited to the current amount of storage they’ve paid for, but we could also get a few GB bonus for music. Soon, we will understand all details.
Cloud-based collections will be available in the Preview version of Windows 10 for PCs in the coming months, which means the new functionality will not be included in the first version for phones and small tablets expected to arrive in February.
