    Spotify isn't changing, the Groove app is.

    Meh. Groove is basically useless for me on my XBOX One. And it's the only Microsoft supplied App on that platform to play my tunes. Local storage isn't allowed on the XBOX Ones internal hard drive. And try as I might, I could not get Groove to see my external USB drive with all my music on it. Your basically forced to use cloud storage. I'm not paying for extra One Drive storage just to play music I already own, on my XBOX. I'll fire up my Raspberry Pi with KODI on it.

    On my PC I just use Windows Media Player. I'm retired with simple needs. I just want to play my music right here, right now.

    I’m similar, not into all that cloud / streaming stuff. I like what I like and prefer my own copies whether that be digital or disc. Unfortunately everything is so cloud-centric these days

    what happens when a cloud based service has an outage, your basically frozen out of your stuff

    I only use Groove for local anyhow, but as usual, Microsoft creates something actually good, then kills it off(hello Windows Phone).

    For new music I stream any how.
    I don't see buying music anymore, as I get bored very fast with any music I own, and I can just stream, and let the ads pay the musician, when I listen to the music at the band's official web site, or the record company's official YouTube page. Like

    Will Groove still grab album art for locally added music? I don’t use any streaming stuff but I like how if I add a track it seeks out the album art
