Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage service lets you store just about any type of file online where you can access it on any device with a OneDrive app or a web browser.
But now you can also use OneDrive as a cloud music server. Upload your songs and you can stream them to any device with an Xbox Music app or a supported web browser.
Once your tracks are online you can stream them to a Windows 8.1 PC or tablet, a Windows Phone 8.1 device with the Music app, or an Xbox One or Xbox 360 game console. You can also just visit the Xbox Music website in any browser that can handle it to view your personal music collection.
You can add music to playlists, download music from OneDrive, or delete music from your collection.
Microsoft lets you upload up to 50,000 songs… but only as long as you have space for them all. You can get 15GB of space for free or pay for more OneDrive space if you need it. Xbox Music Pass subscribers also get an extra 100GB for their uploaded music.
Interestingly 50,000 is also the number of songs Google lets you upload to its cloud music service. But Google doesn’t cap your free storage space at 15GB.
