Microsoft announced earlier this week that the company is killing Groove Music Pass. The company is recommending users to use Spotify instead, and it’s even adding a feature to Groove Music which will easily let users transfer their music from Groove Music to Spotify. That feature is now available on Groove Music for Windows Insiders in Windows 10.

With the update installed,  you will be able to transfer all of your music and personal playlists from Groove Music to Spotify after connecting your Spotify account. But keep in mind that the feature won’t be able to move all of your music as some tracks might not be available in Spotify’s catalog. You can find out more about what’ll happen to your music after Groove Music Pass is killed here.

Notably, Groove Music now includes a “Get Spotify” banner with the “Music. All day. Every day.” slogan on the navigation which links to the Spotify app on the Windows Store. The advertisement is probably part of Microsoft’s partnership with Spotify, and it shows up even if you are not a Groove Music Pass subscriber.

As for the update (version 10.17083.1815.0), it’s only available to Windows Insiders at the moment. But Microsoft is expected to roll it out to all Windows 10 users by mid-October.
