Microsoft Groove now wants all their Groove music pass subscription owners to move to Spotify as the service is about to be shut down by the end of this year.
The company has officially confirmed that the Groove Music Pass Subscription is being permanently discontinued and music lovers will no longer be able to stream, purchase or download music through the Groove Music app.
With just months to go, the announcement may sound surprising or bit annoying but Microsoft wants everyone to move to Spotify. In their blog post, they suggest players should download the latest Groove music app using which saved albums, songs and personal playlists can be exported to the Spotify app.
People who have not subscribed to Spotify will get 60 days of premium access from migrating from Microsoft Groove while Music Pass subscribers whose period extend beyond December 31st, 2017 will get 120% of the sum they paid in the form of a Microsoft gift card.
Xbox One owners who were using the Groove music can conveniently move to Spotify app on their console and continue enjoy streaming their favorite music.
