Despite the retirement of its streaming service, Groove Music continues to add new features for those using it to play back their local files. One of the latest is a new equalizer that made its way to Insiders on the Fast ring, earlier this month, and now that same feature is rolling out to Insiders on the Release Preview ring.
Working much as you'd expect it to, the equalizer allows you to tweak frequency responses as you see fit. In addition to the five available bands that you can adjust manually, the equalizer also includes presets for quick changes.
Digging further into the settings, however, this build includes a couple of new toggles that should come as a nice surprise. Just above the options to switch between light and dark modes, you'll now find toggles for using the artist art for whatever you're currently playing as your wallpaper and lock screen. Each can be toggled independently and, given the quality of the art Groove uses, it should look pretty good.
These features are currently available for Release Preview Insiders with Groove Music version 10.18011.71.10, and we'd expect them to roll out for everyone relatively soon. If you're on the Release Preview ring ,you should be able to grab the latest update on the Microsoft Store now.
