    information   Information
    The included Groove Music app in Windows 10 allows you to listen to your favorite music on your Windows, iOS, and Android devices. You can create a playlist with music you've purchased or uploaded to OneDrive or pick your background music on Xbox One.

    Starting with version 10.17112.1531.0, Groove Music app comes with an equalizer, allowing you to adjust the sound frequency levels to your liking.

    This tutorial will show you how to use the equalizer to customize the sound of your music in the Groove Music app for your account in Windows 10.


    Here's How:

    1. While you have the Groove Music app open, click/tap on the Settings (gear) icon at the bottom left. (see screenshot below)

    Great Shawn:)

    I found out something today, after I told you it was somewhat buggy.
    I guess that was a generalization from lack of information.

    On my Maximus X it is buggy(in my case) maybe because of my Sonic Studio settings, the music stopped when I opened the EQ,, and I needed to restart Groove after, for the settings to take effect, so I couldn't hear anything while adjusting
    Of course with Sonic Studio I have an EQ built in(twice actually if you include the Application Manager portion, to fine tune all programs and apps).

    Anyhow... on my laptop, it worked as it should.
    Even though it's only a 5 band EQ, it made a noticeable difference on my laptop, just like the EQ does in WMP.

    Thanks for pointing that out Cliff.

    Any other EQ on the system may just interfere.

    I bet it would be great though, for Windows 10 Virtual Machines though
    I might test it tomorrow, as I use my hosts libraries when testing(drag and drop too).
    But I need to figure out how to do it without homegroup now(you gotta tutorial on how to do it?), as the latest build has killed that option

    Found it!

    Thank you for sharing the tutorial.

    I was pleasantly surprised when the equalizer was recently introduced, as the Music Pass service was recently discontinued. I hope that Microsoft continues to improve Groove, as I feel it has potential, but Microsoft does not seem to be too interested in it.
