Microsoft Groove Music, which replaced Xbox Music, is the default music player for Windows 10. The application allows you to stream music through Groove Music Pass and OneDrive or play locally stored music. Microsoft Groove was discontinued in 2018.
Groove Music is created to be your go-to player for playing music in Windows. If you subscribe to Groove Music Pass you can access your music on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices by way of the Microsoft Groove app. Any playlist you create will be synced across these devices. You can also download music from Groove Music Pass for offline listening and it will be available to play in Groove Music without an Internet connection.
On your local machine, Groove Music supports many of the most popular music formats, including MP3, WAVE, FLAC, and AAC. You can build your music collection by telling the app where your music files are located on your computer and import music from your Apple iTunes library or Google Play Music. If you're tired of your music you can discover new artists through the app's Explore feature and then purchase and download music from the Windows store.
Groove Music is a pretty simplistic music player, which will make it attractive to users looking to just play music. However, there are some advanced features, such as playback and library organization options, that are sorely missed. Microsoft Groove Music will simplify your listening experience if you want to stream music through Groove Music Pass or OneDrive, but it will also turn away users looking for a more customizable listening experience provided by players like Windows Media Player.
