No, cloud functionality is a paid feature. I wish they did it like Apple and just charge a flat fee per year. I have spotify so I dont want/need their attempt at music. However, having my library in my pocket is appealing.

MSFT actually does. You can pay for XBox Music a year in advance. I believe you also get a discount when you do it that way. I've got about another two weeks before I'm scheduled to renew. I know I will not be continuing with the old plan that gave 10 song credits per month. I'll take the monthly cost savings instead. Anyway, I always forgot abou the song credits and normally loose them.
