Microsoft is finally updating Groove Music on Android and iOS. The company today announced a couple of new features coming to Groove Music on Android and iOS. Firstly, the update introduces a brand new design which looks really nice. With the latest update, the company is also improving the app’s reliability significantly. The update also adds the Explore view, which will allow users to discover new songs, as well as the most popular songs. Additionally, Microsoft is also improving the download speed for the app on Android and iOS. Lastly, if you happen to have a big phone, Groove Music will look much better as the company has improved the scaling of the app with the latest update, too.


Here is the full changelog:

  • Significant improvements to product and playback reliability.
  • An Explore view to learn about the most popular songs and new releases from top artists.
  • Faster download of albums and songs so you can play them offline. The app still needs to be in the foreground to download music, background download coming in a future update.
  • Screen resolution improvements to support today’s larger screen mobile phones.
  • New sorting options when viewing your collection of music.
  • Much faster sign-in to the app using your Microsoft account.

Microsoft’s Ellen Kilbourne stated:

Today we are pleased to announce the availability of updates for the Groove app on iOS and Android devices. We know you’ve been waiting for these updates! Thanks for your patience. We realize having your music with you on all of your devices is important and we’re committed to keeping the Groove app updated more regularly going forward. Thank you for your continued support…and, as always, we look forward to your feedback about these updates. Leave reviews in the store or here in the forums. We’re listening.

With the latest update, Groove Music could potentially be the best music subscription service. The service is very good in Windows 10, and now it’s also very good on Android and iOS. Microsoft will hopefully continue to update it across all the platforms, but for now, tou can get Groove Music on Android here, and on iOS here.
