You can now play music stored in OneDrive through Xbox Music

Microsoft is implementing a new feature similar to what Apple already offers with iTunes Match and Google already offers with Play Music. Xbox Music users can now store their personal music files in Microsoft OneDrive and then stream them through Xbox Music whenever they want.

Want to listen to your personal music collection through Xbox Music? Microsoft has just unveiled its take on an online music locker, allowing people to store their personal music files in OneDrive and then listen to them over on Xbox Music. This is akin to what Apple offers with iTunes Match and Google with Play Music, however it’s a bifurcated approach. Where those services make local files accessible through a single cloud service, Microsoft’s approach makes files available through both OneDrive and Xbox Music, one for storage and one for listening. It’s not necessarily a better or worse approach — just different. Rather than scanning your local files like other music storage services do, Microsoft requires that you choose which files you want by uploading them to a specific Music folder on OneDrive.
