    Oops, didn't see this topic when I posted earlier , thanks for merging it in

    With the video apps prior to Win 10 you are only allowed 5 downloads of an item, then it is streaming only, I recall reading somewhere that in 10 this has changed to unlimited downloads, anyone remember where this has been mentioned, been looking but cannot find it

    LOL I wouldn't trade my Google Play for this any day. In the first place, I uploaded my personal music to Google storage (50 GB worth) and can access it from anything, anywhere any time I want. Plus, I can listen to an unending amount of music and it is free. I can upload up to 20,000 songs free (have 11,000 now), only then for $9.99 I can expand it to unlimited storage. I seriously doubt Microsoft will grant me 50GB of OneDrive storage free.

    Plus, is this only accessible through a windows machine? What good is that? I guess it will work for some, I am pretty happy right where I am at.

    Is that a statement or a question? Are you saying Groove is available on anything?

    not sure on the iOS part, Apple might not like it renamed to just 'Music'
    This might explain why they went with Groove over just Music. They'll want to unify the name across all platforms. Groove stands out and probably isn't used by other developers. I suspect we'll get updates to the iOS and Android apps to change names at the very least. Hopefully bug fixes and new features will be added also.

    always good to have competition, IMO, more choice of what service to go for

    OK not being an XBox person, I didn't know. I will check that out, I doubt I use it, unless purchase prices are better.

    Oh and I stand corrected, I said Google Play allowed you to upload 20,000 songs, that is wrong, it is now 50,000 songs of free storage. I can't imagine having that large of a collection.

    That's why they are rebranding, people think you need an xbox to use it

    you can easily get 30GB of storage for free to use with your music with MS, so not sure how many songs that is

    Depends on record quality I would think. I have 11,000 songs using 256kbps quality and it is like 56GB so i would say at 128kbps (what they deem CD quality) it would roughly be 10,000 songs.
