Groove on Sonos

by Volker Weber

Today we’re adding another great service to your world of streaming music on Sonos with Groove by Microsoft.

This has been available for a while as beta. Now it's officially supported.

Get started by using your Groove Music Pass (free 30-day trial) or by accessing purchased music from the Windows Store or your own collection. Add Groove from the Music menu of the Sonos app available on iOS and Android devices, and Windows and Mac desktop computers.

What's missing? Obviously a Windows Phone controller. Microsoft has been working on one literally for years. The project name is Phish, and Alphas have leaked last year. A few days ago Phish Alpha has updated in the store, after many months being completely dormant. Google for "Phish Alpha 0.25.0.4 XAP" and you find this.

I may be wrong but I think that's the only service that allows you to put your own mp3s in the cloud for free. Started using it for my Beatles collection as it will probably never be available on Spotify, ever.

No, it's not the only one. The other one is Google Play Music.

Haha, ok, in which case I'm a "DAU" because I looked at their offering :)

Hmmm... beim Versuch, das auf mein Gerät (Windows 10) mit den (eigentlich) richtigen Einstellungen zu deployen, bekomme ich 'die XAP-Datei ist ungültig'. Das XAP hat auch den Header 'PRE', der auf ein verschlüsseltes XAP hinweist, was aber normal ist. Bin ich alleine?

@Hubert
Für mich sieht das so aus, als sei die app nur für eine geschlossenen Benutzergruppe freigegeben.
