Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra revealed today that Groove Music will have background music on the Xbox One soon and that ability will come to other apps too later on.

Background music is a highly requested feature on the Xbox One and it will soon be available for all Preview members to try out.

Mike mentions that the feature is already available, but corrects himself in a tweet he posted shortly after:

If your Xbox is enrolled in the Preview Program, you will receive the update “very soon” and you will be able to play your favourite music while playing your favourite games, however, not all apps will support it at the same time, as it is up to individual apps to implement the new feature.
