Microsoft adds music video support to Groove on Windows 10 PCs and phones for Insiders [Update]

Earlier today, we reported that Microsoft updated its Groove app for the Xbox One, bringing back the ability to play music videos. The feature was never available on Windows 10 PCs or phones - until today, as the app was updated for Fast ring Insiders.

Of course, not all songs have videos that you can play, but when you find one, you can turn the feature on by pressing the video button - which is located in the media controls - while it's playing.

If you've never tried out Microsoft's Groove Music service, the company is currently offering a promotion where you can get your first four months for free. The offer is valid until the end of the year, but you're only eligible if you've never used a free trial before.

You'll need to be on the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Preview to get version 10.16112.1015, or you can just wait for it to arrive in the Production ring (non-Insiders), which will likely only be a couple of weeks.

Update: According to Jen Gentleman (@JenMsft), this is not an update for the PC or Mobile applications. Apparently, the Xbox changelog somehow found its way to the Feedback Hub and got listed as a Fast ring update.
