Last year as a part of Forza Horizon 3, Microsoft directly integrated its in-house music streaming service "Groove Music," alongside support for music files via OneDrive cloud storage. This direct integration added a more personal edge to the in-game radio, with the added benefits of post-processing effects for a more immersive experience.
Earlier this year, we reported that support for OneDrive music streaming was set to make a return in Forza Motorsport 7, in a similar manner to Forza Horizon 3. However, after spending some time with the full game, it now appears the feature is still a while off. Speaking to Windows Central, a Turn 10 spokesperson has confirmed that OneDrive music support is still in the pipeline and will be implemented after launch.
"Forza Motorsport 7" will let players use their personal playlists via OneDrive. We're excited to make this feature available at a later date. Stay tuned.
Since the launch of Forza Motorsport 7, Microsoft has announced plans to re-introduce Forzathon challenges, the Auction House, and the Marketplace in post-launch updates. It appears that support for OneDrive music streaming is also among the features making a staggered arrival.
Like in many racing games, music can be a key accompaniment to driving itself and the Forza series is no different. While various background music is currently in-game, for now, customization options are somewhat limited. In the meantime, we recommend using background audio support through the official applications for Spotify, Groove or Pandora on Xbox One.
