Another feature boasted by the new Groove service is the integration with the OneDrive which allows users to upload their personal music collection into Microsoft’s cloud and play them anywhere (at least anywhere with an internet connection).

Groove is now available on Windows, Windows Phone, iPhone, Android, Xbox and as a web player. A Groove Music Pass will cost $9.99 a month with a free 30 day trial available here.
