Latest Groove Music for Android update brings basic but essential features

Microsoft has released a new update for the Groove Music app for Android, taking it to version 11.0925.1507.

The update brings along two new features which are both rather basic and which we are surprised were not there already.

The first is the ability to move to the next track by swiping the now playing screen.  We can also confirm swiping in the opposite direction also brings you to the previous track.

The second feature is also rather basic but builds on a major strength of the Groove Music service.

Groove lets you stream music from your OneDrive collection, and the new app now lets you search your collection directly from the app, as can be seen in the right screenshot above. Previously a search would only show you what is available in the Groove Music catalogue, which is always annoying when you know for certain you have the track in your collection.

If you’re an Android users with a Groove Music Pass subscription, you can get the app here. You can also get a Groove Music Pass here.
