Apple Music Now Available on Xbox
Apple Music is now available on the Microsoft Store for the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One, providing subscribers with access to the streaming music service, complete with large album art, full-screen time-synced lyrics, and more. As noted by users on Reddit, music can be played in the background while gaming.
The app is similar to the one available on tvOS for the Apple TV, with a top navigation bar for Listen Now, Browse, Videos, Radio, Library, and Now Playing. Apple Music launched on the PlayStation 5 last year and is also available on select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Roku, Android, Amazon Echo, Sonos, Google Nest, and Windows via iTunes.
Apple Music recently surpassed 100 million songs available, but Apple has not revealed how many subscribers the service has in several years now. Apple Music's largest rival Spotify was already available on Xbox, along with Amazon Music, Deezer, and others.
The Verge's Tom Warren shared a brief preview of the Apple Music app for Xbox:

If they can get it running on Xbox then they can put out an app for Windows through MS Store for 10/11. It's basically the same OS.
I would immediately cancel my YouTube Music sub and Apple would get my money. I'll keep waiting...
Edit: Although, to be fair, the Windows app needs to be able to handle much more than the just the stream apps they’ve been making (such as local music libraries, the iTunes Store, syncing devices, etc.)
