Xbox Music will be a free streaming service supported by advertisements

Microsoft announced that Windows 8 will have a launch partner on the 26th -- an Xbox Music service.

According to Microsoft, the new service will be a free streaming service supported by advertisements. The Verge noted that it's similar to Spotify.

Xbox Music will be integrated with Microsoft's SkyDrive cloud service, where users will be able to store their music and playlists, then access them from various devices.

Initially, Xbox Music will be available on Xbox 360, Windows 8 and Windows Phone. Xbox 360 users can expect a dashboard update to support the new music service in the coming weeks.

Xbox Music will eventually have iOS and Android apps as well, but they won't be available at launch.

Xbox Music was originally announced in June of this year as a replacement for Zune, but The Verge notes that the existing Zune Pass subscription offering will still be available along with Xbox Music.

Xbox Music will be released alongside Windows 8 on October 26.
