Microsoft is gearing up to launch a music streaming service similar to Spotify by the end of this month

The new service from Microsoft should be ready by the end of this month and will give members the chance to stream music for free, as well as download to own.

"It will be a similar principle to Spotify but we are still examining how the business model will work.”

Similar to the way Spotify operates, Microsoft would allow you to stream music for free in exchange for listening to around a minute of advertising every thirty minutes.
