New Groove Music Pass users can get four months for free, again


At the end of November, Microsoft had a promotion for its Groove Music Pass subscription service where new users would get four months of service for free, provided they give out their credit card (as is usual for such promotions). Well, it appears this wasn't just a one-off, because, as of today, Microsoft is doing it again.

To take advantage of the offer, new users need to sign up for the service's one-month trial, after which they'll receive a promo code giving them three bonus months. After the free period ends, subscribers will get charged $9.99 per month, unless they've cancelled their service in time. The offer ends on March 1, and promo codes are redeemable until March 14, but previous subscribers to Zune, Xbox or Groove Music Pass are not eligible for it.

Similarly to other music subscription services, Groove Music Pass allows users to stream and download music from its library, and supports up to ten connected devices. If you're looking for a reason to ditch one of its competitors, such as Spotify, Tidal, or Apple Music, this offer is a great starting point for trying out the service, which is available on Android, iOS, Windows, the Xbox, and on the web.
