How to import iTunes playlists to Groove music on Windows 10

If you're making the upgrade to Windows 10 there's a good chance you'll find yourself using the Groove music app. It's much improved from its predecessor, Xbox Music, on Windows 8.1 and one nifty feature is bringing your stuff from iTunes with minimal fuss.

Microsoft has made it really easy to bring your playlists from iTunes into the new app.

Here's what you need to do:

1) Slide out the hamburger menu from the left of the screen

2) Click on the cog towards the bottom to open "Settings"

3) Under "Music on this PC" you'll see an option to "import iTunes playlists"

4) Click on this, then hit "Import" in the box that pops up

Groove Music

That's all you need to do. From here the Groove music app will do its thing and once complete your iTunes playlists will be available. Since creating a playlist in iTunes actually requires the music to be on your PC, Groove will have no issues locating and playing your tunes.
