There’s no ‘Radio’ support on the web-app either, and strangely there’s also no shuffle option present.

You can however add and remove songs, create playlists or edit playlists and because Xbox Music syncs via the cloud, any changes you make on the web-app will also take effect on your phone/tablet/computer – very handy if you want to get your gym playlist ready while still in work.

Microsoft are offering a 30 day free trial for non-subscribers and current subscribers can head on over and start listening right now.
