Groove is no longer in the heart.

21 Mar

So OneDrive music streaming in the Groove music player is finally coming to an end in the next few days. This is a shame – I think I was one of the last people to actually use this.

I understand why, but I’m not happy about it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not exactly angry either, as I said, I understand why. It’s just a shame to see cool features being retired, especially those I still personally use.

Such is life.

The only upside is that the day after this gets the chop I’m scheduled to have my cable internet finally installed with a 20MBs upload speed. That still seems quite slow, but much better than the 1.2MBs I current get on a good day, so streaming from my Plex server should fill the hole.

It’s unfortunate that the Plex UI isn’t as good as Groove, but first world problems, and all that.
