Microsoft started Xbox Music 2012 and renamed it to Groove Music 2015, and it has never become as popular as its rivals, such as Spotify, iTunes and Google Play Music. Microsoft even announced that they will close their streaming service on December 31st.
They have teamed up with Spotify instead and they will make it easier for users to move their playlists between two services. This update will come next week to Windows 10 users, but users of Windows Insider (like “Windows Beta”) will receive it later this week.
Microsoft has decided to stop selling Groove Music passes soon and those who are already subscribed to Groove will get a pro-rata refund. However, you will still be able to play local MP3 and OneDrive files from your Windows 10 PC. Android and iOS users will also be able to access their OneDrive files after December 31st.
