Recently, a rumor surfaced that a web version of the Microsoft Xbox Music app is scheduled to launch this week, and as it turns out, that rumor is solid. The website is now online and ready for Xbox Music subscribers, though one must enter this realm expecting all the features found in the app. The most important features are there, and that's what should really matter with version 1.0.

The first thing one would notice of the Xbox Music web player, is how similar it is in design to the Windows 8.1 version of the app. Furthermore, the Radio option is now found here, so those folks who enjoy using that feature will have to stick with the app for now.

In addition, we've found out that the web player can be shared across multiple computer devices. What does this mean, you ask? Well, if you should pause your music on computer 1, and launch the Xbox Music web player on computer 2, you should be able to pick up from where you left off. That's pretty cool, right? Another great thing with the web player, is the option to edit playlists, add new music to your collection from the cloud, and search for new music to listen to.

Another thing to take into consideration, is that Xbox Music web player syncs content across Windows Phone 8, Widows 8, Windows 7, and Xbox 360. We suspect this should work the same way when the Xbox One launches in November of 2013.

Furthermore, Microsoft noted that Xbox Music Pass is available on PCs, tablets, Xbox 360, phones, and on the web. While that's all good, it would be great if Microsoft would launch an Xbox Music app for Android and iOS, along with making available some of the features from Zune such as the option to like or dislike a song.
