Microsoft to shutter its Groove Music service and migrate users to Spotify | ZDNet:

Quote

Groove Music Pass -- the Microsoft streaming music service formerly known as Zune Music and later Xbox Music before being rebranded to "Groove Music" in 2015, is one of Microsoft's few purely consumer-focused cloud services.

Microsoft will continue to run Groove Music Pass until the end of calendar 2017. After that point, those users with any remaining months of paid subscription to the service will be reimbursed. Starting this week, Microsoft will be encouraging those using Groove Music to migrate their playlists and music to Spotify.

Microsoft will continue to update the Groove Music application on all Windows devices, however, allowing those who have music stored in OneDrive to continue to play and manage their music through that app. But after December 31, 2017, the Groove Music app will no longer allow users to stream, purchase or download music.

Also see:  Microsoft to bring Spotify to Groove Music Pass customers - Windows Experience BlogWindows Experience Blog and Groove Music and Spotify: FAQ.

Most importantly, note:  Music will not be available for purchase or download from Groove after December 31, 2017.  Thus, f you bought anything using Groove Music, make sure everything's been downloaded before the service is shut down.

I'm more interested in seeing if the Spottify transer of songs, rights, etc works to 99%.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis
