Enlarge / Groove Music running Android.
Microsoft has removed its Groove Music apps for iOS and Android on December 1st.
Multiplatform music applications lost much of their purpose when Microsoft closed its Groove music and subscription service last year. However, they retain some value because they can play music stored and synchronized on OneDrive. This will end on the date of retirement, with Microsoft saying that not only will the application stop being available for installation, but also that existing installations will stop working.
When he closed his store, Microsoft suggested that users turn to Spotify as an alternative. This time, the company redirects users to Google Play Music and iTunes Match. The OneDrive app itself also has limited music playback capabilities. Overall, however, the net effect of this change is that the use of OneDrive for music storage is no longer of any interest as the best application of playing music stored on OneDrive is disappearing.
Groove Music will continue to be supported and developed on Microsoft's own platforms, where it is the default built-in music playback application.
