Works perfectly for me

I have a very large collection and it works great. I am also a music pass subscriber and enjoy being able to play anything I find across the app. It isn't perfect but for a free music player already installed on box I think this is wonderful.

Its getting there

CPU usage on Surface Pro 3 i7 can get really high. I have to run this app in low priority mode so it doesn't interfere with my work day. Sound quality is great. I would like if it copied some of the fun playlists on Google Music. Radio feature works well though. Android version on my phone sucks when using Bluetooth car stereo, constantly skips.

Where's the support for Pass holders?

I don't like that I can't add to my collection. This needs to be addressed seeing as the paying subscribers are being shafted.

Simple and clean

It does everything I need it to. I tell it which folders to scan, it organizes music in a clean, coherent fashion, and I can do all of the basic stuff I'd expect out of any music player such as shuffle, repeat, playlist, etc. Nothing special, but it looks very clean and fits right into the Windows 10 ecosystem.

Three steps backwards

No link to music pass so I can't download anything. New UI is not really at all intuitive. Crashes fairly often.

Sync issues

It's decent, but there are many flaws and nuisance to iron out. Sync issues is the most frustrating shortcoming. My playlists won't even sync. And, multi-disc albums doesn't work properly, even from Microsoft's own store (for example, Quadrophenia by The Who)

Bring back Xbox music

I will call to demand a refund for the rest of the year 30 sec previews on all songs pc or phone and unable to download music from the store. I have a pass and it is worthless now.

Simple, Quick, Easy to Use

Huge improvement in UI over Xbox music. It's a clean interface and easy to use.

Newest update killed my collection and playlists

My collection is now loading, among with my playlists - but not completely, and playlists are full of broken links to songs. ..... Can't see streaming collection. Can't see playlists. Not connecting to my paid subscription to Xbox Music or whatever it's called now.

Plays Small Collections Passably

In 2015, even the most basic free players offer expansive library capabilities and sound control. Groove Music stands out from the pack by adding support for a laughably small number of locally stored songs in its library and offering absolutely no controls for volume, pitch or effects. It is, however, still free. And overpriced, at that.
