Xbox Music delivers all the music you love, on all your devices. Now, with your help, we can enable users to not only listen to their music on every app they love but also discover new and innovative ways to interact with music. The new Xbox Music APIs make it easy for any app publisher to connect an app or website to be powered by music. The Xbox Music API provides access to RESTful web services for building beautiful experiences using rich artist and album metadata across Windows, Windows Phone, Xbox, iOS, and Android. In addition to providing access to a catalogue of over 38M songs, at //build we will be showcasing our beta developer program which will enable app developers to build scenarios that take the use of music beyond simple listening, and will showcase examples of how participation allows you to use music as part of games and much more. Of course, as an app publisher you have the opportunity to participate in our Xbox Music affiliate program and get paid with some of the highest referral payouts in the industry. Come listen and help unlock a creative new world of apps powered by music!
