For those who do not like to risk the Release Preview, Slow, or Fast Rings Microsoft has good news for you tonight. The new Your Groove curated playlist feature, and Explore is now live on your PC and Windows 10 Mobile phone.
Version 3.6.2304 of the Groove music app is now live in the Store. This is the same version available to the Insider Rings, who won't see an update tonight as all builds are now equal for Groove.
With the tonight's update for non-Insiders there are numerous new features, including:
- With this update, Groove introduces major new personalization and discovery features – new ways to find and enjoy music you love
- Get personalized playlists based on your music! They'll appear automatically in Your Groove when you add music using Groove Music Pass or OneDrive
- Music Pass subscribers: Explorer is now loaded with playlists from expert music editors crafted for every mood and activity
- Based on your OS settings, Groove will keep downloading music over cellular when you're not longer on Wi-Fi
Besides Your Groove, Microsoft's Ellen Kilbourne took to the community forums to give more detail on Explore, excerpted below:
Many Insiders, including ourselves, have been enjoying Your Groove and Explore, so it's very exciting to see it hit all devices tonight. Head to the Store and get the latest update.
