Hello, Windows Insiders! Another update for Groove Music hit the Windows Insider Fast ring last night for PC, phone, and HoloLens. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Here’s what’s included in this update:
Playlists from Your Groove and Explore now get tracked in the recent plays section.
We updated the app so that it warns you when you're about to add duplicate content to your playlists.
If you have a Groove Music Pass, Cortana will now play music by genre even if your collection doesn't have any music in that genre. Cortana, play ROCK! Cortana will also do a better job when you simply tell her to play music. She'll play music even if you have zero music in your collection. She'll pull from Top Music in that case.
We added a bit more telemetry to the Cortana integration with Groove Music so that we can even better understand when she doesn't deliver on your requests related to music.
We updated the app so that it automatically enters full screen mode on the console.
We updated the Feedback Hub app so that it collects even better information about your collection when you submit feedback about the app.
We updated the way the app looks for music on SD cards so that discovery is more reliable.
We made changes to improve local playback…we heard your feedback on issues here.
Thanks for your ongoing support. We look forward to reading your feedback!

[08/16/16] We decided to press pause on this one briefly to allow us to flight one more update to the last major payload published. Look for 3.6.2396.0 instead.
