Great, Need sound hound & share options

I love the app, stopped using Pandora. However, I just can't seem to get it straight on how to get the music on my phone. Need some sort of comprehensive guide on this. Also, really need a sound hound component so I can capture a song I am listening to and add it to my collection. Also, need to add ability to share link to song information via fb messenger... really bad because I can't show everyone that they should be using Groove!!! Thanks!

Love it!!

Hated Windows Media Player. I would never use it as my default music app, I'd always use winamp for that. However I decided to give Groove a try and I absolutely love it. It's simple, elegant, and not slow and clunky like iTunes. Will definitely keep using it as my default music app from now on :) By the way I LOVE the fact that it shuffles through various pictures of the artist currently playing. Great touch!!

best music app ever created

I got the most recent update on my pc and the album images are way smaller, and please bring back artist Imagery and the your groove functionality. Those were two main features that made groove stand out compared to Spotify and other streaming services. The your groove was great it helps with re-discovering songs you like that you haven't listened to in awhile. Please stop changing the looks of your apps to mock the look and functions of android apps. Groove with album and artist images that scale pretty much the hole screen and Swipe navigation is much more user friendly and visually appealing than hamburger menu navigation and tiny album covers. Since the hamburger menu style isn't going anywhere anytime soon can you at least add swipe navigation to the songs artist and albums under the my music tab. Also can you add the ability to edit local and eventually onedrive mp3 tags and it will literally be the best streaming and local music player ever created.

Easy to use, improving all the time!

One thing I DON'T LIKE (and why I gave it a "4") is this: because under the section "My Music", you list only three possibilities: "Songs", "Artists", and "Albums". There needs to be a change there. The "Artists" possibility should be labelled "Album Artists" because I can't pull together all my artists who have songs spread through various collection albums. THUS, my RECOMMENDATION is two-fold: 1. relabel "Artists" as "Album Artists" and 2. ADD a new possibility just before it titled "Song Artists", which would pull together all the songs of the same artist even if he or she is spread through several albums that feature a collection of artists! I would like to see all my Kitaro songs, or David Arkenstone songs, or Mozart songs all listed in one place under the actual artist in a "Song Artists" section. Do you see what I'm shooting for? It would be nice to hear from you!

Good, but I want more

This music player have nice interface. But I would like see more features: adding album/artist pictures manually from internet or device, adding playlist pictures, lyrics which user can add visual effects like in Win7 music player, equalizer with presets and so on.

Good, getting great!

I like seeing new features and improvements being added all the time. Metadata editing and limitless playlists are the two most important for me, missing features.

Simple, Pretty Player

Found my music easily. The interface is pretty and brings in the album covers nicely. No skipping, fluid playing. Needs a way to rate songs and sort by rating. Would be nice to have a mini-player that could sit on top of other applications.

Nice and handy

Btw I prefer to fetch all my play lists, even if they was created before update. Also it's must have to support pictures for songs, and more time for music fetching in certain folders.
