Groove Music for Windows 10 gets a new mini player

Microsoft continue to develop the Groove music app for Windows 10 and the latest new feature is a picture in picture style mini-player. Utilising the new CompactOverlay feature of the Windows 10 Creators Update the new player floats over Windows while you listen to music, you can switch tracks and pause playback.

The update is rolling out to Windows Insiders but if you are on the latest fast ring build you won’t see the update due to Microsoft pausing app updates while they test the inbox apps. My Surface on the release preview ring received the update today.

This isn’t the only change coming to Groove, later this summer Groove will be adding visualisations and an equaliser. You can hear JT from the Groove team talking on our podcast recorded last month.
