Groove Music for Windows 10 to finally get curated playlists with Your Groove
Microsoft has finally updated the Groove app to include a highly requested (and overdue) feature for curated playlists, called “Your Groove”. It might not seem like a big deal, but it is, to Groove users at least. With the new addition, Microsoft's music app finally has to offer something that Google Play Music, Spotify and Apple Music users have been enjoying for quite some time.
Your Groove automatically curates playlists for the listener, based on musical preferences, genres and current activities. Microsoft promises that the playlists will update often to give fresh recommendations and listeners can save their favorite mixes for later. Saving also allows for editing the content of the lists and for offline playback.
Unfortunately, the new feature does not work with local files on your PC, but requires either a OneDrive music collection or a Groove Music Pass. Subscribers of Music Pass will get even more variety, as recommendations from the online catalog will be mixed in with the playlists, based on the user's existing collection.
Your Groove is available on Groove Music app version 3.6.2244.0 or newer. If the update hasn't rolled out to your device yet, despair not. Everyone is receiving it, and much more, in this year's big Windows 10 Anniversary update (for all Windows 10 devices), scheduled for the end of July.
