We haven’t seen much excitement about cloud music lockers for a while, but the concept lives on – with Microsoft seemingly the next tech giant to launch an offering as part of its OneDrive service. At least, that’s what the Windows Central blog is claiming, based on a leaked link that “will automatically create a ‘Music’ folder on your OneDrive – this will be where you place all your music files to add to your Xbox Music collection for playback across all your devices”. It goes on to claim that Microsoft will give 20GB of additional cloud storage to anyone who uses the new music feature, which it claims will be free to use. The story notes that “Xbox Music Locker” (although it’s a bit hazy whether that’s an official title) may launch in December, just as Microsoft ends the free streaming component of its Xbox Music service.
