Microsoft's Groove Music app built into Windows 10 is easy to overlook if you're not a subscriber to the streaming service. The truth is, though, it's actually a very capable music player with very little fluff.

Here's a handy checklist of the audio file formats you can enjoy in the Groove Music app on Windows 10.
