Microsoft Groove becomes Spotify as it shuts down

Microsoft are shutting down their streaming service Groove Music at the end of this month to integrate with Spotify.

As announced earlier this year Groove Music will no longer be streaming come 2018. Microsoft are shutting the store down, but you have until the 31st January to move your library over to Spotify and continue streaming there.

Of course this means that for our users we will no longer be working with Groove Music and any music chosen for Groove is unlikely to be sent before it is shut down now. We will be stopping submissions to Groove in the next 10 days.

If you’re a Groove Music Pass subscriber then Microsoft are giving out refunds to paying subscribers. You can find out more about how to get a refund, transitioning to Spotify, and details on the closure here:
