It was a bad week for fans of Groove Music. Microsoft said on Monday that it will soon shutter the service. More specifically, sales in the Store for music and the Groove pass will end December 31. Groove Music streaming will continue to function until December 31, and then the service will be completely disabled.
Our Executive Editor Daniel Rubino published an insightful post on the whole situation, to explain why Microsoft made the move. But the bottom line is that there are a lot of people who invested in Groove, and in Microsoft, who now feel like they've been abandoned. I know some members of the Windows Central team feel exactly this way.
How do you feel? Are you, or were you, a loyal Groove user? What do you think of the move, and perhaps more importantly, what service do you plan to use in place of Groove? Hit the link below to chime in and let us know.
