Hoping to pick up the ball that MTV dropped so long ago, the Xbox Music service now offers a selection of 92,000 music videos to Xbox One owners.
According to Xbox Wire, watching these new vignettes is simple. "Find your playlist, say 'Xbox Play,' and watch the videos appear on screen. You don't have to spend hours tracking down videos for each song - it's all rolled into one easy step." The explanation makes no mention of planned future additions to the music video collection, but it does note that each is displayed in high-definition.
Before you rush off to watch whatever passes for "buzzworthy" these days, know that access to Xbox Music is not free. If you want to use the streaming service, you'll need to shell out $10 per month. There is a free, 30-day trial of Xbox Music available, but if you're only in it for the videos, you could save a lot of money by just scouring the Vevo YouTube channel.
