So many improvements, finally a contender

I like the addition of the album art to the title/artist line. The curated playlists and recommendations in Explore are great as is the gapless playback. The compact split screen on PC app is a nice companion view while doing other work on my PC. The android mobile version has a simple and easy to use UX but the buffer needs to be larger when streaming to prevent dropouts. Competing apps and services do better.

Now that you can sync OneDrive playlists, I love it

I am using this all the time now that you can sync playlists to OneDrive. It has become a killer app for syncing my language learning collections.

Easily an ITunes replacement

Smoother than iTunes and has Microsoft flair. Easy to use and much more user friendly than the interface of iTunes, VCL Media player and especially Windows Media Player. Truly a media player for the next generation of computers.

Solid interface and music selection

I really enjoy the Groove Music application as it makes it easy to access my library at home through the cloud and the radio services have better selections over all from Pandora. The biggest detractor that I have found is in order for the Groove Music application to have any functionality beyond playing local files on your machine you must pay for the Groove Music Pass subscription. If you are looking for a free service that is able to share your music library across a cloud service this is not the app for you. But if you are not opposed to paying for the service is its amazingly reliable and fully integrated to Xbox and Windows

Wonderful use of the Onedrive

I enjoy this app thoroughly especially since the update that allowed for background music while gaming. I have a large music library and putting it to my Onedrive adds to my convenience. The auto generated playlist give me the chance to enjoy different well constructed lists without needing to make a load of playlists. The only addition this app needs is a visualizer.

Easy to use, Good selection.

Great app easy use. Great selection music. Better than most Music apps I've seen. If I could Give it higher than 5 I would. Only bad feature is the loading screen sits around for awhile. For first timers can be a little hard to navigate. Specifically on Xbox One. Otherwise best music I have seen other than iTunes. If you find the subscription expensive? It is definitely worth it. You can have that one of the widest range of choices I have seen.
