    Groove Radio?


    Back on September 18th it was announced on Insider Hub that Groove was receiving an update that implemented an 'internet radio' feature. I've had at least two updates of Groove since then, and I still don't see any radio feature. Are any of you seeing it?

    You can go to Insider Hub and click 'see all' Announcements - scroll down and you can see the announcement 'New updates for the Groove app', dated 9/18. There's the announcement of this radio thing, something called 'explore', and a couple of screen shots.

    Haven't seen a radio feature yet either. I've asked in the forums and not gotten any responses. Wondering if you have to join Groove Music Store to enable it? Haven't tried that. Wanted to see if anything pointed that way and I can't find anything on it.

    It might just be the mobile version
    Itís been a long time coming, but the music app on Windows 10 Mobile is finally rounding out some of its rougher edges. Windows Software Engineer Ellen Kilbourne just tweeted about a series of updates to various Windows 10 Mobile apps such as Movie & TV as well as Groove Music.
    Today it looks like the Groove Music app has finally been updated with the much-requested Radio and Explore features added back into the music experience. Prior to the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview, the music app formerly known as Xbox Music offered users an in-app shopping experience as well as a late addition radio feature. When Microsoft moved to Windows 10 Mobile development, Insiders lost both the ability to shop and explored for new music within the app as well as the capacity to create radio stations based on their selected artist. Over the past few months, the process of searching and acquiring new music on Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds has been a convoluted mess. Eager shoppers were issued work-in-progress type disclaimer when they visited the Explore area. The only way to search for new music was to go into the Store app and select the Music category.
    As for the missing radio station feature, this has been a sore subject for any Windows 10 Mobile Insider trying to argue the merits of Groove Music over any other streaming service. Without the radio station feature or an in-app shopping experience, the Groove app on mobile has been an user-unfriendly siloed experience for many. Other improvements include: With Groove Music Pass, radio creates instant playlists based on your favorite artists

    I was beginning to think that, myself. The screen shots are clearly from a phone. So much for 'Universal Apps'

    That is an update to mobile (Win 10) to add back features they removed

    Radio and Explore are currently in Groove, Desktop version (I have been using them for nearly 2 years, though you might need to be a music pass subscriber to use them)

    Because at home on the desktop I have a radio in the room? But I usually just stream YouTube with Chrome minimized, and that for free
