Xbox Music Not Coming to Windows Phone 7.x (Zune Lives)

October 15, 2012 1 Comment

Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Music was built for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Xbox. Therefore, Xbox Music will not be coming to Windows Phone 7. That includes any variations like 7.5, 7.8 etc.

 ”Windows 7 will still have the old Zune client. That client will have access based on the subscriptions and the content that anyone purchased and that content can flow forward to Windows 8 but we’re not touching that client just now,” says Jerry Johnson, general manager of Xbox Music.

“It’s a very different feature set but you’ll have access to the same content,” says Johnson. “We’re not going to update the [Windows Phone 7 client]. There might be some iconography upgrade from what I’ve seen but it will continue to be a Zune product because it’s not going to take on the Zune features we’re going to walk through today.”

Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 will still have Zune and offer the extensive catalog but will be lacking all the new features.
