All of the goodness of the universal Groove Music app came to Xbox One last night for people in the Xbox Preview program. We're thrilled to have brought support for background audio!! Hope you enjoy it! You'll also find Your Groove, a rich Explore experience, and all the other things you've previously come to love about Groove on Windows devices. The new universal app doesn't have music videos just yet. We know how much you love videos and will bring them back as soon as we can.
Look for version 3.6.2381 on your console the next time you fire it up! Along with bringing the universal app to the console, we added a few things to the universal app in the last few weeks:
Check out the new focus on genres in Explore. You can now see curated playlists, new releases, best new songs, top albums, and top artists...all by GENRE!! Available in US, UK, FR, CA, and DE.
Radio stations show up in Recent Plays in Your Groove.
You can check out which artists are included in a playlist in Explore more easily now because they are highlighted when you click on a playlist.
You can give feedback on playlists in Your Groove with a thumbs up or thumbs down. You can also mute specific songs in a Your Groove playlist if you don’t want to hear it anymore. Muted songs will be excluded when you play that playlist later or save a copy to your collection.
Introduced landmarks in Groove to reduce tabs when using Narrator.
As always, many thanks for your support. We appreciate it. Jump into the Xbox Preview Dashboard app and let us know what you think about the app!
