Finally, a music app worth downloading!

I really like it so far, but it's missing some features from Zune, needs Last.fm scrobbling with collection and radio, and to show album art along with the background art on now playing.

Great Look lacks Features

This app looks great (Windows 10 Version). However, it messed up some of my album art and I want to add some album art which has gone missing. The Find album info keeps giving me the information of the albums but not the album art itself. I would like a way to manually input album art which I have downloaded since that feature has been in windows since Windows Media Player. Groove Music randomly closes. I could be listening to music and it just closes without any error message being displayed. Microsoft please update!

Looks good but missing function

The player is missing a few abilities like smart playlists, persistent music resume and sorting by genre. Better compatibility with Bluetooth and third party apps like last.fm are also needed.

great app for playing my music collection

very nice collection management, playlist ... I don't need anything else to play my content and manage my playlists

A refreshing new start

I like the new look I hope that more features are coming soon, like artist/song tastes, last.FM like social, curated radio, personalized playlists, along with other Zune features

Worse app ever

This app can't play my MixRadio music collection while other players can do this then why l need this app 👎

Need more improvements

1) The app kinda messes up my album art: I have a playlist, in which there are several albums and each song has its own album (song) art, and somehow the app just randomly slaps one cover on all other songs in the same album, please do something about it. I've used jetAudio on Android previously and encountered nothing of the sort. 2) The shuffle option doesn't properly sometimes, I don't know if this happens in all other modes (artists, songs, albums...) but when I play my personally-formed playlist, when trying to rewind or forward between songs, shuffle seems...non-existing, just keeps playing the same next or previous song. 3) If things permit, how about giving us an option that shows a song's lyrics that is written in the tag? Or maybe an option to modify a song's metadata? Otherwise a pretty well-rounded music app to me (for my personal use at least) but improvements can't hurt.

You can't fix what's not broken

The Music app was the bomb. Where does Groove Music fall short when compared? 1) I use Bluetooth to stream music in my car. I can't rewind or fast-forward through tracks - only skip entire tracks. 2) Also Bluetooth-related, song data is missing - no longer shows album title and genre. 3) I liked the artist in the background, behind the album art. Now you have an option: artist photo OR album art. 4) For some reason, I create a playlist on my phone and it disappears after I sync the phone with my PC. I wish I knew where the phone saved playlists so I could create backups. Very frustrating! 5) The very thing I disliked about iTunes the Groove Music app now does. When playing a shuffle, the same song could play twice in a row or multiple times before other songs even had a chance to play. This ruins the vibe. In the Music app, once a song has played, it moved to the next (like a game of "process of elimination). You can always manually repeat if you chose. 6) No more live tile

Collection update fail

I can't see my collection, my online collection. All my music is in the cloud and I can't see or play it on my cellphone
