Multiple sources have today confirmed that Microsoft is set to launch Xbox Music alongside Windows 8 on October 26 this year. The service will include free music streaming to all your devices, allowing for an easy way to play your music on whatever device you are using.

Xbox Music will include SkyDrive integration, which allows you to play your music and playlists on any device hooked up to your Microsoft ID. Xbox Music will also be making its way to Xbox with a new Xbox dashboard launching later this year, but there hasn’t been a set date as of yet.

Microsoft is set to launch a handful of products this month, including Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. It all starts on October 26, 2012.
