Play Your Own Music Anywhere on Any Devices with OneDrive and Groove Music

Thanks again to the deep integration between Groove music app and Windows 10 system. Now you can copy your own music files to OneDrive and then get access to them from any Windows 10 PC or device, or other platforms such as iOS, Android, using Groove Music. It works with any music you have within your possession, whether they are ripped from your own audio CDs, purchased from services like iTunes, or acquired from services like Groove Music Pass.

Assume you have a valid Microsoft Account already, all you need to do to get start with is simply copy your musics into Music folder in OneDrive. You don’t need to spend time organizing them there as the Groove Music app will take care of that for you. The screenshot below shows 5 music albums I copied into my Music folder in OneDrive.

The Groove Music app in my Windows 10 PC automatically picks them up and gets them all organized for you.

And of course, if you don’t have these devices handy and are only on a computer that has a web browser. Well, in that case, you can enjoy your music with Groove Music web app too.

Heck, it even works on Xbox Music app on Windows 8.1 computer or Windows Phone 8.1.

And what’s even better, you can get all these for free. Now if you are still using iTunes for your music sync after seeing this, you are so web 1.0 just like iTunes.

I am officially moving away from iTunes to warmly embrace Groove Music and OneDrive.
