Still far from prefection but getting there The app has the tendency to just not work for several minutes but typically it will. Usually 5-10 minutes of no clip art or songs. Another issue and I assume it runs for a few artist was no metallica or limited selection there of. Is there some sort of contracting issue? Beyond that the app is exceptional. 10 a month and one has nearly unlimited music selection with recommended artisit and albums.
Could be the best if they fix the basics Biggest strength of Groove = integration with PC. All the music from ur PC in ur groove collection. Then it's available on everything from ur phone to Xbox & etc *Issues* 1. No single repeat option. 2. No back button on lock screen widget. 3. Latest albums section disappears after u add an album from the album section. 4. Intermittently when app is opened, no music plays. 5. No family option. 6. When playing song the 3 dots only give you option to clear, no other options 7. No option to play music 4 alarm.
Wish it saved to external memory It would be nice if you could switch Groove and all the downloaded music to the external memory. It takes up so much room and dramatically slowing my phone down. Also, app will stall for 5 minutes or more before music will play and thumbnails appear.
NEEDS SD card support! The app is pretty much quite nice, it just urgently needs SD card support. I've been using it for years in Windows Mobile and the lack of that feature in Android is making me consider switching to another music streaming service.
Nexus 6p - slow load times I'm running on a nexus 6p and the app takes upto 2 minutes from loading for me to play music. I've used this app on s6 edge, iPhone 6 and a lumia 650 without such issues. Having to wait so long to start playing an album is frustrating.
I dont recommend... Used Groove since it was Xbox Music. In general its come a really long ways, great user interface and selection of music and its on par with the other music services. But beware everytime it gets updated Microsoft screws it up for awhile. It's really frustrating, why can't a billion dollar software company just fogure it out. I cant give it more than 1 star, its consistently not working anymore.
