Last night Microsoft's Xbox Music service released apps for iOS and Android along with free streaming for the web application.

Almost a year old and claiming to feature 50 percent more music (30 million tracks) than both Spotify and Rdio, Xbox Music is aiming to integrate across different platforms. 

Microsoft Returns to Digital Music With Xbox Service

"A lot of people use multiple music services to get the songs and albums they want," said Jerry Johnson, General Manager of Xbox Music in a statement. "You’re listening to Pandora and bookmark a song you love. Later, you open Spotify and use your subscription to listen to the song over and over again on repeat. And then you use iTunes or Amazon to purchase the song for your own collection that wasn’t available for streaming."
