Microsoft announced today that it has launched Xbox Music on iOS and Android devices worldwide, expanding the number of devices that the music streaming service is available on, as it becomes a serious contender to services such as Spotify and Pandora.

Both the iOS and Android apps have landed in the App Store and Google Play respectively.

It also rolled out free streaming on the Web to all, which means you can simply visit its website to start listening to free music. You get the unlimited amount of free Web streaming for the first six months, after which the number of hours will be limited for free but unlimited with a paid subscription.

Microsoft will also add its Radio feature to the free Web plater later this year, which is a way to personalize your music collection and create playlists based on your favorite artists.
