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.

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.
