Groove Music adds dedicated music video area on artist pages

The latest update to Groove Music has added a relatively small, but handy change to artists pages. You'll now find an area dedicated to music videos for artists that have them available on the service, making it a little easier to track down and watch videos for a specific artist.

The section appears just above the Related artists portion of each artist page, appearing as a carousel with what are presumably the top videos. Clicking "Show all" across from the section header will take you to an expanded section with all available music videos on display. Prior to this, finding music videos was a little bit more of an onerous process, as you had to search for or stumble upon songs with videos manually.

This feature appears to be available for Groove for both Fast ring Insiders and non-Insiders. It appears Mobile users are currently left out of the fun, however, as we aren't seeing it there just yet. If you're on PC, however, you can update to the latest version (10.17062.14111 on Production) to check out the section for yourself. Keep in mind that Fast ring users will currently have to use the new "Skip ahead" feature to start getting inbox app updates (for apps such as Groove) once again.

  • I got it on Mobile today :)
  • What region are you in and what Ring are you on?
  • Production, Norway
  • Interesting...I'll have to test something
  • I like the video integration with Groove I just hate the volume that comes from the videos are not consistent. When using a playlist all of a sudden when a video is available the volume goes up or down. This needs to be fixed ASAP
  • Is it a Groove Music Pass thing or videos will only arrive at non-insiders' with Fall Creators Update?
  • Groove music pass thing, basically you have to pay to see the same videos that are on youtube
  • got yesterday on production ring on 14393
  • I don't understand this feature.  How many people actually sit there at their computer watching music videos?  The first time I saw the music app on Xbox One play a video instead of the song I thought it was stupid (plus, it wasn't the correct version of the song that was in my library--live recording vs Microsoft's MTV video).

  • Its amazing for parties at my house with my xbox
  • It is cool for parties. I setup a projector and project the full screen artist art on a wall. Videos mixed in make it pretty cool and fun. 
  • Well this feature isn't meant to be for everybody, but I think many will appreciate this (if they just know Groove Music even exist or knowing its actually good). Like others said, great for parties which adds some bit more flair to it. Even for more casual use, having this option is great which means less actions you need to go to the web browser and find on YouTube. Though they still have to work out their catalogues.
    I wished that they just copy the Zune Now Playing and have same sweet animations which will make the Now Playing lively and worthwhile to use. Especially for songs that may not have music videos or just don't want it. Many seem to praised that and Microsoft doesn't seem to care about it.
  • what is with lyrics? Will they add this in the future?
  • I have that and I'm not insider, in both phone and pc
  • Kinda neat, but would make a lot of sense on the XBox version, if it isn't there already. I would really like someone on the Groove team break out a copy of Zune and look at the auto-playlist creation options. Songs listened to a lot, songs not listened to in a while, songs added recently, and all dynamically updating.   It would also be nice if MS made some minor effort in letting people know about Groove. It is available across all three mobile platforms, and has a web app if you are a Mac user or on Win 7/Vista. The price isn't out of line with other services. If only they'd do a family plan. 
  • Yeah, the Zune Now Playing were awesome, they really should implement same thing to Groove Music. Other features from Zune like rating system (Hearts) to improve the recommendations, and the auto-playlist that doesn't need internet similar to Zune and WMP. They seriously need to offer Family Plan, a service that they pioneeer but scrapped while their competition are enjoying it and taking all the credits.
    Marketing is definately absent on Groove Music, which is really sad for the efforts they do on Groove Music that it is least known to most people. Though their apps on Android and iOS are awful though, it needs a serious work on those. Groove Music experience is only great on WIndows (even on W10M!), but on Android and iOS, were most people are, have alot of limitations to be a regular music player.
  • Absolutely love this new feature :D
  • Finally! I still believe they should bring that to Xbox One first though.
  • Videos have been on Groove/Xbox Music since the 360!
  • I don't know how they link the videos, but that process could still be improved. I checked a view artists and a lot of official videos are missing, while others appear double
