Groove Music gets new exploration features on Android and iOS

Groove Music users on iPhone and Android might have an easier time finding some new tracks thanks to the app's latest update. Included in the update are new exploration features that should make it easier to find new artists, albums and songs based on a specific genre of your choosing.

Here's a look at what's new for Groove Music on both Android and iOS:

  • For a given music genre, explore the relevant artists, albums, and songs
  • On a genre's page, play radio based on that genre
  • See and hear playlists shared by others
  • Various bug fixes

Groove may have a smaller following than the Spotifys of the world, but its users live on all platforms, so it's good to see Microsoft is keeping the app freshly updated with new features everywhere. You should be able to hit up your respective app store to grab the update and check out the new features now. If you're listening on iOS, you'll want to look for app version number 11.0131.1439, while Android users will see 11.0208.1513.
