Microsoft will launch its streaming Xbox Music service on October 26th, according to a report on The Verge.
The service will offer free, ad-funded access to Xbox LIVE Gold users, which will also be supplemented by those paying for the ad-free service.
Anyone using a Windows Phone and Windows 8 devices as well as Xbox 360, will be able to access and store music and playlists in the cloud using Microsoft SkyDrive. Xbox 360 owners will get access to the service in the latest Xbox 360 dashboard update, which should launch around the same time.
iOS and Android support is also on the way, although there is currently no timescale for this.
