Microsoft have released an update to the Windows versions of the Groove app to Windows Insiders. The update for Windows 10 Mobile, PC and Xbox has a tweaked UI, now has voice navigations on the Xbox and improved sign in procedures.

I did notice a nice change to the music view. When you scroll up the list or albums or songs by artist the header shrinks and stays at the top of the screen rather than scrolling out of view.

Here is the list of changes via Microsoft:

  • There are a few UX updates throughout the app…see if you can spot them all!
  • You can use your voice to navigate the app on Xbox One consoles.
  • You can select items in the app with a single click now.
  • Sign in will work more reliability because we changed the way we check your region.
  • We did work to ensure the correct track title and album title are displayed in playlists you follow.
  • The Navigation Pane in Groove Music on Xbox One console has been resized to fit better on average sized screens.
  • You can give detailed feedback in the Groove Music app. This change makes it easier for us to triage incoming feedback! Check the settings page for these new options.
  • We updated the way we create version numbers so that it’s easier for us to tell when a version was produced just by looking at the version number – this one was built in the second half of September 2016 so 16092.
