Microsoft brings its new 'Your Groove' music playlists to more Windows Insiders

A few weeks ago, Microsoft released a significant update to its Groove music app on Windows 10, introducing a very handy new feature.

Called 'Your Groove', it automatically creates playlists from your existing music collection - and for Groove Music Pass subscribers, it offers an additional benefit, "mixing in some recommendations of new songs you may like based on what you already have in your collection".

Initially, the new feature was available only for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring, but it's now available more widely. Microsoft's Ellen Kilbourne, Community Manager for Groove, revealed that the update is making its way today to those in the Slow and Release Preview rings too.

A further update to Groove was released to Insiders last week, adding a splash of extra color throughout parts of the app, along with other improvements. In addition to Your Groove, these new features and tweaks are expected to be made generally available to all Windows 10 users as part of the Anniversary Update, coming in a few weeks' time.

Microsoft is also hoping to encourage more users to sign up for a Groove Music Pass, by offering an extra three months of free service when they sign up for one month, priced at $9.99.
