Xbox Music for iOS updated with offline playback, finally
Xbox Music, Microsoft's music streaming service, has been on iOS for several months now. However, upon its initial release, the service lacked one of the key features of the Windows Phone version – it lacked offline playback. This is no longer an issue, because Microsoft has recently added the much-awaited feature to the iOS version of the Xbox Music streaming app.

Version 2.0.31213 of Xbox Music for iOS allows users to cache playlists to their device and listen to them even if they currently lack a proper internet connection, for example when traveling by either a subway or a plane. Unfortunately, it's currently unknown when the Android version of Xbox Music will receive this feature.

Using the Xbox Music service is completely free of charge for the first six months. After that time passes, if the user doesn't opt for a paid subscription, streaming will be limited to no more or less than 10 hours per month.
