Windows 10: Groove Radio?
It's only a Mobile because they removed this feature from the Mobile TP (so anyone with a music pass could not fully use the service)
This feature already exists in desktop, though it might not have been when Groove first came out, but has always been in the xbox music app
So what is it actually Paul? Just a playlist player or actual internet radio?
you select an artist and it creates a playlist based on similar
allows you to browse the music store and add music into your collection for offline/online use
OK thanks, I'll stick to YouTube then, it works for me
The feature does not exist in the Groove desktop app in Windows 10 as of build 10547. There are many msgs in the Feedback and Forums corroborating this.
This is a music pass feature, so I woudnt expect it to be there for non subscribers
Nowhere in the announcement does it say it is a music pass feature, but if it is, it is. I will stick with my current setup (I use Audacious for I-radio - works just fine).
From the link at the bottom of the insider item, my bolding
A new release is available today for the Groove app on Windows 10 Mobile. Check the Store! This release (version 3.6.1299.0) includes the following:
- With Groove Music Pass, radio creates instant playlists based on your favorite artists
- Groove Music Pass lets you explore, search, and play our full music catalog, right in the app
- Now playing always shows your last-played songs, so it's easier than ever to listen again
- Improvements to the metadata displayed when using Bluetooth
I took that to mean that with the Music Pass, you'd get 'instant radio stations', not that the radio feature would be unavailable at all. No problem, I just want a player where I can enter my own URL's. Groove doesn't allow that, nor does any other app in the Store as far as I can tell. Just another app I have no use for.
Looking at the price of the Groove Music Pass, wouldn't people just use MixRadio for free on Windows Mobile?
Yeah, who listens to the radio now a days.. I do and still love it. Free music!! Nothing better in my mind than free MUSIC!! :)
Right now I'm tuned into either:
1 94/7 Portland Alternative
2 Absolute Radio London
Both in my mind are very...
Todays update (7/26/2015) KB3074678 breaks Groove Music radio function. Radio links fail to open when you click on them. Before this update they were working fine.
Is there a radio function as part of Groove. I'm on the RTM build, all updated. I've seen clips showing a radio function on the left side toolbar but can't figure out on how to show it and use it??? TIA
This is not okay at all. How can I make them not mute when I minimize them? Someone asked me to go to Settings>Privacy>BackGround Apps
iHeart radio is set to on and that has no difference. Groove music is not listed.
Another death knell for WMA (Windows Media). BBC is switching (has already done for some streams) to HLS. WMA is being dropped.
For those who use things like SONOS / SQUEEZEBOX / INTERNET RADIO devices the BBC is (has already for some...
