Microsoft is likely to gain some goodwill with the Spotify partnership, and the company could be dodging a bullet down the road by dropping the music service now to free up more time for other development opportunities.

All users who hold a Groove Music Pass will have the capacity to relocate their records to Spotify in any event until January 31.

The Groove Music app has been used by Xbox One owners to play music in the background.

To successfully export your Groove Music selection, you'll need to use the latest version of the app. Other tech behemoths have tied their premium music offerings as included goodies for Prime and YouTube Red subscribers, primarily because they haven't been able to stand out on their own the way that Spotify and Apple Music have so far.

Starting December 31, 2017, the Groove Music app will stop supporting options to stream, purchase and download music. Music purchases in the Windows Store will cease, and the Groove Music Pass subscription service is also ending. Instead, Microsoft is partnering with Spotify, and letting users move select Groove Music content to the streaming service.

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Spotify are the two heavyweights in music streaming, collectively commanding almost 100 million paid subscribers at this point.

Some users might even be eligible for two months of Spotify Premium for free. If you want to save playlists from Groove Explore, you'll need to make copies of them for your account. It informs us that Spotify on Windows provides a range of popular genre playlists, and personalised music experiences, across a very wide range of devices, with a music catalogue of over 30 million songs. The Windows Store will no longer sell you music, although according to Thurrott, you'll still be able to buy movies, TV shows, and ebooks (ebooks support was only added to the Store with the Windows 10 Creators Update).
