Microsoft rebranded its Xbox Music service to Groove earlier this month, and it officially launches today. While Sonos never supported Xbox Music, fans will be pleased to hear that Groove is now officially supported. It's available in beta from the Sonos controller, allowing you to stream Groove music to compatible speakers. Groove music is primarily used as a subscription-based streaming service, but thanks to OneDrive integration you can simply upload your MP3 collection to the cloud and stream it to Windows, iOS, and Android devices.
Groove provides access to millions of songs just like rival services Apple Music and Spotify. Groove music support for Sonos is rolling out in beta in the following markets: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States.
