Microsoft may offer OneDrive cloud storage for Xbox Music users

Microsoft's Xbox Music service allows users to stream songs to various devices with a paid subscription, but it's limited to the tracks that the company has in its library. Now there's a rumor that Microsoft is working to allow users to upload songs they already own to OneDrive so they can be played later on Xbox Music.

LiveSino reports they have found references to such a storage locker service in OneDrive's source code. Here's the description they found:

Meet your OneDrive Music folder. Upload your music files to this folder, so that you can play them via Xbox Music from any of your devices. You can also add files to this folder using the OneDrive app for your computer.

While the code may currently exist in OneDrive, it's not yet live to the general public and there's no word on when Microsoft will turn on this feature. This certainly would be a huge help for heavy Xbox Music users who also own their own digital tracks or who want to transfer music from their legally purchased CDs to the cloud. Similar cloud storage features are already available for Amazon's Cloud Player and Google Play Music.
