Microsoft has finally released its Xbox One Summer Update, which brought support for background music. In other words, music applications will be finally able to play music in the background!

All you will need to do is start playing a song in an application that supports background music and you will be able to switch between games and other applications while listening to music.

Well, since Microsoft has brought this feature to the Xbox One console, it was expected that the company will release a Groove UWP app for Xbox One. Keep in mind that this application is currently available only for Xbox Preview members, but after the developers will receive enough feedback from the users, they will be able to finally bring the application to all Xbox One owners.

While using the Groove UWP application on your Xbox One, you will be able to listen to music while playing games. After starting to play music, you will be able to pause, adjust the volume and skip from anywhere by double-tapping on the Xbox button to open the guide, then to select Multitasking->Music Controls.

However, keep in mind that not all music applications will support the new background music feature. However, according to reports, an updated Pandora version will be released in the U.S. soon enough and it will support background music.

In addition, the American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, is now offering 3 extra months of free music. So, if you purchase a month of Groove Music Pass, the next three months will be free of charge. It is good to know that Groove Music has over 30 million songs and allows you to install the application up to 4 devices, but you will be able to stream from only one device at a time. The application is also working on devices that run on iOS, Android, Windows and Windows Phone.
