There's no doubt about it — a lot of people were left out in the cold when Microsoft shut down Groove Music last year. To make the cancellation a bit easier, Microsoft partnered with Spotify, allowing users to import their Groove playlists to the ongoing service.
In the grand scheme of things, having a music streaming service seems to be a big part of tech business these days — Apple, Google, and Amazon are all giants in this area — and Microsoft currently can't really compete. But what if the company acquired Spotify?
Windows Central forum member fantasy122 recently created a thread suggesting it would be a good idea for Microsoft to purchase Spotify to get back into the streaming music arena.
fantasy122 mentions that Spotify provides service in more countries than Groove did, and it already has some quality apps in the Microsoft Store. These are good points, but do you think Microsoft really needs a streaming music service of its own? Does it need to compete with the other giants?
