Good, but can be better

Sometimes I can't open any song, I have to close and open the app for it to work, other than that it's pretty good. However I wouldn't mind to have the option to have a music visualizer, that would be really cool, also an equalizer wouldn't be bad either.

Mostly really good

I really like the interface; I think the app looks great. I would give it 5 stars except every once in awhile after it plays a song it will not automatically move on to the next one. It doesn't happen all of the time but it is frustrating when it happens. Other than that, I love it. Especially the Radio feature!

Great music selection

Plays music, cross platform support (iOS, Android, Xbox One), great music selection. I hope they keep improving the app and the UX/UI. Would love to be able to start and finish music across the platforms (start listening on my Surface Pro at work, move to my iPhone app, get home an finish listening on my Xbox One/home sound system).

Groove is pretty great

The only issue I have with Groove (the 4 stars) is the "deactivate 1 machine every 30 days policy." When you run insider builds, it's pretty easy to end up reformatting often, and locking yourself out of your groove subscription.

This app is a much needed improvement

Great intuitive interface, play songs from the cloud is perfect. Could have a more "random" shuffle. It seems that large playlists have many songs that don't quite make it to the top of the play list.

Limited control

I like that the app works in both mode, tablet and laptop. Also, easy to change music when on other apps. However, it is very inconvenient when adding music or editing music. Very low control within the app. the design and trial adverts divert from the main control panel and makes it difficult and annoying to use. You can't drag'n'drop any music as it will not add them to playlist. Overall, very disappointed about the app. Hope to see massive changes to this music player - a nice combination of conventional mp3 player and online player such as Spotify would make it the perfect app.

Give me more

I like the music options but would like the onscreen options to be more intuitive. I also want to be able to download music to my phone easier to manage.

I love this app, if I download music from anywhere I can easily double click what I want to listen to, and Groove music will open. I love this app, I can arrange and create playlists, There is not 1% that I don't like about it.
