Other improvements and fixes include sign in reliability improvements, the track titles and album titles have been fixed in the playlists, the navigation pane on the Xbox One console has been resized, and lastly feedback settings have improved.
Is Groove For You?
Groove certainly has a lot of competitors in the music streaming space, with Spotify, Google Music, Apple Music, and others in the way. This app is built into Windows 10, and is competitively priced, so users can try it with ease.
With it working across all Windows 10 devices, and having millions of songs in the catalog, it lines up with the others. It’s ad free, it features offline listening, and has artist based radio stations like the others too. Maybe, with the Xbox One integration, it can make its way on more systems.
The Microsoft Groove App is a great music app, and it only costs $9.99/month for the premium service. It’s similar to the others, but with its Windows 10 & Xbox One integration, it might just be better than the others.
