Microsoft has signed up to use Gracenote for its music services, including Xbox Music.
So what? Well, Gracenote, is a wholly owned independent subsidiary of Sony, allowing users to have their music recognised when moving from one service to another.
"A big frustration for music fans is having to completely rebuild their collections when switching between streaming or download services," said Gracenote president Stephen White.
"Gracenote music recognition and data will make it easy for Xbox Music users to migrate their collections to the cloud without searching, repurchasing or even uploading."
Other features of the service sees Gracenote scans a user's machine for music, collate it and open it in the cloud. Any music found and owned by the user will be there, and can be streamed on iOS and Android and now on Windows devices and the Xbox games consoles.
Gracenote looks for audio fingerprints in music and compares them to its database. It'll also add cover art and other information to your music.
It's nice to see Sony and Microsoft working together, who knows, maybe this means we'll see Skype on PS4? Although maybe not.
