More than a year after Microsoft announced its Xbox Music service, the company has finally brought it to the Web.

Microsoft's Xbox Music platform is now available for users in the browser. Customers can head over to its page and stream "millions of songs" from within the browser. Microsoft last week told CNET that the subscription, storage, and track-purchasing service would be coming to the Web, and it has officially made good on that promise.

Microsoft claims to offer "millions of songs" through Xbox Music and allows users to download tracks they purchase to a wide array of devices, including tablets, PCs, and other platforms. The offering was announced last year at the E3 gaming expo and was baked into the Xbox 360. It's also available on Windows 8 PCs. Tracks are synched across multiple platforms.

In a statement to CNET last week, Microsoft said that a mobile version of Xbox Music will be coming to iOS and Android sometime this year.
