Create and edit Playlist or Radio Station on Groove Music on Windows 10

The renamed and reworked Xbox Music App on Windows 10 was reborn as Groove Music app. Like other well-known and popular streaming services, Groove Music lets a user subscribe to unlimited on-demand songs at an affordable rate – $9.99 per month, with a Groove Music Pass. Besides, if a user is not interested in paying for the subscription, he can still upload music files to Microsoft’s own OneDrive service to have them available for playing in Groove.

We have already covered in our earlier tutorial how to add Music to Groove Music App on Windows 10. In this post we walk you through the process of editing a radio station and creating or editing playlist on Groove Music on Windows 10.

    Why is it all the websites I go to say add as many songs as you want to a playlist when it is limited to 1000??

    This will sound like an elementary question or questions: 1. I want to ensure that I did not somehow accidentally enroll in the groove pass program at $9.99 per do I do that? 2. Is there any charge for making a playlist? Thanks….

    I don’t want to ‘subscribe to unlimited on-demand songs at an affordable rate’. I already have 100,000 songs in my hard drive and I don’t need some flipping device stream (commercial) music to me. What id like is to simply play the music off my hard drive though Windows devices. Its my music on my had drive. Why does Windows expect me to pay for this? real question (is there a way to play my music through windows devices?, specifically I’m talking about Forza Horizon 3 and if not, when will this option be available?)
