Xbox Music changed its name to Groove at the beginning of this month, and today, the rebranding has made its way to the music app on Android’s Play Store. It’s free to download, and is available right now.
Along with the new look and name, the app has had a couple of new features added. More devices can now download tracks for offline listening thanks to newly added compatibility. Music stored in your OneDrive folders will automatically show as music in the new Groove app. What’s more, you won’t need a paid subscription to make use of the app, although you will need one to access the entire streaming catalogue ad-free.
As per the Play Store listing:
OneDrive • Add your MP3s to OneDrive and play them wherever you go • Download playlists, albums, and songs from OneDrive to enjoy your favorites even when you’re off the grid • See at a glance what’s available where (online, offline, both)
Music Pass • Discover new songs, albums, and artists right from your iPhone • Play ad-free music from one of the biggest music catalogs on the planet • Add songs, albums, and playlists to your Groove music collection and access them from your phone, Xbox, PC, tablet, and the web • Listen to radio stations based on your favorite artists
