    I have a 950XL and a Nokia 1520 (running W10M). Neither phone supports Cortana voice commands in Groove Music.

    When the 1520 was running WP8.1, I could presss the microphone button and say, "play bandname songname" and the song would play. Of course the MP3 was loaded locally on the phone. But in W10M when I give the command, Edge searches and displays the Youtube video link. Plus the only microphone within the Grooove application is to perform a search. It won't play the song.

    Does Microsoft plan to add Cortana voice commands for Groove music?

    I haven't tried for a couple months so it was several insider builds previous, but my experience with getting Cortana to play music on my 950 has been extremely hit or miss. All of my music is on OneDrive with no Groove Music Pass.

    "Play Band A" = Play random songs from Band A
    "Play Band B" = Bing search for Band B
    "Play Genre X" = Play random songs from Genre X
    "Play Song Y" = Bing search for Song Y

    Didn't seem to be any reason for the inconsistency, but it was bad enough that I stopped using it. I'll give it a shot again tonight and see what happens, but I can only assume that this functionality is supposed to already be present.
