Groove Music is one of the most popular digital music streaming services in the world. This tool is now better than ever thanks to a bevy of new features. Microsoft recently pushed out a major update to the Groove Music app, adding a series of Project Neon-based features.

As a quick reminder, Project Neon is a new design language for Windows 10 that works across all devices. This tool leverages effects, including textures, 3D models, and lighting, to unify the Windows design language even further. Recent app design concepts already revealed one of Project Neon’s trademarks: a balanced connection between the blurry and clear sections of apps.

These features, and many more, are now available in the latest Groove Music update.

Project Neon revamps Groove Music

The latest Groove Music update adds a blurry, translucent area to the sidebar of the app. If you want to see what’s behind the app, you need to move the window around.

The Now Playing user interface has also been improved both on PCs and Mobile. It now looks neater and is similar to the VLC app. Also, the app now blurs the album art when no artist image is available.

If you’re listening to a song that has a music video, you can easily watch the video as well. To make things easier for users, Groove Music now allows you to instantly add 10 more pieces of media to any playlist. And speaking of playlists, you can now listen to the latest tracks as you add them to featured playlists.

Of course, Microsoft still needs to perfect a few things about the new Groove Music design. For example, users suggest that the light yellow background doesn’t really match the white text.

We’re sure that Microsoft will further improve the design of the Groove Music app and the final result will make it even more popular among users.
