Citing sources familiar with Xbox Music's internal team, The Verge is reporting that the web-based version will launch as early as next week at music.Xbox.com. The same sources also state that Microsoft is already started updating its Xbox Music pages in preparation for the launch. Xbox Music on the web will work very similar to how Spotify handles its web-based music streaming, and will let you manage playlists through the browser.

 

Microsoft is also refreshing its Xbox Music App in preparation for Windows 8.1. The new design will include a two-panel interface and will improve discoverability while allowing quick access to collections of songs. It will also support streaming music files from SD cards and improved play to smartphones outside of the Xbox music catalog.
