Groove Music updated for Insiders to version 10.16092.1022 - here's what's new

Insiders should be seeing a Groove Music update today, as the app has been updated to version 10.16092.1022. Groove is a universal app, so Windows Insiders and Xbox One Preview Program members should get the new build.

The app contains a number of new features, fixes, and improvements. Here's what's new:

  • There are a few UX updates throughout the app…see if you can spot them all!

  • You can use your voice to navigate the app on Xbox One consoles.

  • You can select items in the app with a single click now.

  • Sign in will work more reliability because we changed the way we check your region.

  • We did work to ensure the correct track title and album title are displayed in playlists you follow.

  • The Navigation Pane in Groove Music on Xbox One console has been resized to fit better on average sized screens.

  • You can give detailed feedback in the Groove Music app. This change makes it easier for us to triage incoming feedback! Check the settings page for these new options.

  • We updated the way we create version numbers so that it’s easier for us to tell when a version was produced just by looking at the version number – this one was built in the second half of September 2016 so 16092.

The new version numbers are certainly interesting, if you're into that sort of stuff. Windows 10 and Office now use a four digit version number, with a two digit year followed by a two digit month. Adding the fifth digit for Groove implies that Microsoft plans to update the app twice a month.

The last major update that we saw for Groove was back in August, which made Cortana improvements. A few days later, Microsoft added background Groove Music support on Xbox One.

As usual, Microsoft wants your feedback on the new app. If you're on Windows 10, you can submit it through the Feedback Hub, and on Xbox, through the Xbox Preview Dashboard.
