The Reasons Why This App From Microsoft Sucks !!

What I Don't Like About This App Is The Brain Dead System (A.I) To Organize Your Music , Sometimes It Suffers From That , Because It Stores Different Bands Into One Folder And Then It Do Not Even Load The Images / Pictures. So You'll Have To Find The Album Again Until It Loads The Band & Images Or Deleting & Restoring The Music File Until It Finally Works & That's Saying If You Have Better Luck Organizing It Than I Have. The Only Good Thing This Has Is The Music Player & That's It. So I Do Not Recommend To Use This App Unless You Have Plenty Of Patience To Do So.

Great app getting better all the time

Huge selection of music. Nice clean interface. Wish I could unlike songs so I never hear the bad ones again. Also, why can't I listen to Groove in the background while playing games on XB1? Fix these issues 5/5.

One (very small) problem

I love that it can play my high quality music so well, and I use this for all my music on my Surface Pro 3, but I still prefer using my file explorer on my pc since I can organize and access my music so much easier that way. Update based on that if you want, but I don't mind how it is.

Looking Good

It is WAY better than the Windows 8 version of the Music player; improving on that in functionality and focus (not so Store focused--but focused on my music). BUT it still lacks a nice way to edit meta-data. Right-clicking the song and selecting properties brings up a nice summary card, but there is no way to modify the contents! Not all music is recorded professionally or purchased online, and even the online stuff is not always correct. Several of my older CDs when ripped are given wrong information, song titles, etc. So there is a need to correct this stuff. To fix these I have to leave Groove and do it in File Manager or the old Windows Player! (Otherwise I'd give this a 5 star.)

Still a pale shadow of the superior Zune client

Continues to fail to even fully process my very large local collection; database creation fails and corrupts resulting in numerous manual re-attempts. No auto-playlist support, no wireless syncing, no easy way to play an entire genre's worth of content. Re-installed Zune client recently and it interrogated and added all 216,000+ VBR *.wma files w/ embedded 600px album art without issue. Is there no load/limit testing on large collections done? MSFT needs to re-hire their dedicated testers, DEVs testing in agile is not the answer.

Only signs me in half the time 😢

Love the UI, but flaky service makes it really tough to use. Also would love better curated playlists for me to discover music I actually like instead of the end less stream of pop and rnb that seems to appear under "Explore" at the moment...

Works fine...needs a couple of things.

Recommendations based on my current collection would be nice. And a downloads window where I can cancel and delete certain downloads. Also, toolbar on the left side needs to be simplified. Way too confusing right now. Otherwise, this is a good improvement from Xbox Music and iTunes, but not quite as versatile as Spotify.

Fantastic effort by the Microsoft team.

The app is a joy to use. Especially on PC where there are minimal operating errors. The music experience is clean and all paid services are quite usable. We do miss artist images in the now playing section, hope those come back soon.......the mobile version has a couple more problems, like the terrible text on its now playing section and unpleasantly fuzzy album art, please fix that guys. Thanks for the app!

It's not bad.

I want it to easily play back my music collection, not just play that one song I clicked on repeat. Also, sometimes songs are played with the wrong album art playing. Other times the full screen artist art is pixelated.

Does the job, grabs tracks from the folders of your choice, organizes them for you, and can place tracks in playlists. What more do you need? I guess if I wanted anything else it'd be graphics like waves on the now playing screen when playing music. Other than that its Groovy.
