Alongside its Movies and TV update, Microsoft has also updated its Groove Music app for Windows Insiders on the Fast and Slow Rings with a slightly refreshed interface.
To begin with, Microsoft has replaced the “Artist” “Album” “Song” tabs with a single “My Music” Section. This single tab comes with top-level tabs for faster navigation between the three sections. For users who rely more on local and personal music than recommendations, this makes Groove simpler and faster to use.
Oddly enough, My Groove is apparently gone from the list 20of options in the hamburger menu. Instead, there’s the new “Recommended” section which shows ew releases and artists that are similar to what you already have in your library. I’m not sure whether this means My Groove features are now locked behind a paywall or if they are gone entirely from the app.
Finally, the bug which made the apps display the app package in the title bar instead of the app name is fixed with this update. In other words, Hello Groove Music, Goodbye Microsoft.Zunemusic_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.ZuneMusic.
Like the Movies and TV app update before it, it’s not rolling out to just everyone just yet.
It is not just Windows Insiders who are getting some love, earlier today Groove Music picked up an update on Android aimed at improving the sharing features of personal playlists.
Grove Music can be found here in the Windows Store
