Say bye to Xbox Music and embrace Groove in Windows 10

Posted by

Microsoft has changed the name of the music service from Xbox Music to Groove. The change should take effect starting from Windows 10. There isn’t many changes here, except for a different brand name. In a blog post yesterday, Blandon from Microsoft said:

Groove describes what people feel and do with music, and is more intuitive for our Windows 10 customers on what they’ll find with the app.

Groove comes with a new look and feel, with an improved experience for listening to and managing your music in Windows 10. Your favorite songs are a click away with built-in OneDrive integration.

Xbox Video has also been revamped simply to Movies & TV with renewed interface and direct access to Windows Store. The new feature will be rolled out to Windows 10 PC’s before reaching other devices.

  1. Microsoft and their historic branding/naming problems.
    Funny enough:

    1. there’s already an cpp in the Windows/Windows Phone Store named Groove Music Player, by a totally different company.

    2. “Groove” was the name of another Microsoft product. Remember Microsoft Office Groove 2007?
