Microsoft re-branded its Music app to  Groove Music some time ago, and it looks like a great music service now. But, some people are using some other music services, like iTunes, as well, and they might want to move their iTunes library into Groove Music.

So, in this guide, I’m going to show you how to do that in this article.

Microsoft wants new users for its new music app, so it featured an option which allows you to import your iTunes libraries into Groove Music with just a few clicks.

So, if you decided to switch from Apple’s music service to Microsoft’s, you don’t have to loose your time to organize your libraries and playlists, for whom you worked hard to create in iTunes.

You just have to follow these instructions, and you’ll have your iTunes library in Groove Music in a matter of seconds:

    1. Open Groove Music and open hamburger menu
    2. Open Settings (gear-like icon)
    3. Under Music on this PC, click on Import iTunes Playlists

This option will scan your iTunes account for the playlists and it will import all of them into your Groove Music app.

So, as I said, this is a great way to attract some new users into using Groove Music. And if Microsoft didn’t include this option, a lot of users wouldn’t even bother to create new playlists from scratch, instead, they would rather stick with their current music service.

Are you using Groove Music for your music streams, or you just prefer some old-fashioned ways, like YouTube? And if you do use the app, what are your impressions about Microsoft’s latest music streaming service? Tell us your experience in the comments.

UPDATE: Since the writing of this post, Microsoft decided to end support for Groove Music. You can still listen to your favorite playlists, but you need to export them to Spotify first.

For detailed instructions on how to do that, you can use this guide and you’ll be able to transfer your Groove Music playlists to Spotify in no time.
