    cant find it anywhere. I am seriously considering switching my music streaming service to groove music because the spotify app for windows phone is so slow, rdio is abit better, but i think if i switch it would probably be better if i go with the native service, which is groove.

    But i have a few concerns:

    1) the sound quality as the title suggests
    2) import spotify playlist, spent a lot of time making them when i was on spotify
    3) the ability to search playlists
    4) top charts, i dont seem to be able to find charts like billboard top 100 etc

    without 3 and 4, it would be really hard for me to find new music, didnt know where to go

    any thoughts? thanks!

    but obviously they rebranded the service, i think it is very reasonable to ask if they have changed anything beside the name....

    I can tell you that playlists I've created are arbitrarily CHANGING SONGS to different songs from the same artist, ie. I add song a from artist a and it works fine for a few days. All of a sudden out of the blue song a becomes song b. This has happened several times. It also goes through spells where trying to skip ahead one track results in it skipping 1 or 2 tracks ahead.

    Groove is exhibiting some bizarre behavior. I hope they've addressed some of this in the latest build.

    It would be even BETTER if it was something like 64K AAC

    AAC is a superior compression to mp3 by far.

    Go to shoutcast and listen to a 128k mp3 stream. The high frequencies will be noticeably crap. 92 k and below will be horrible. 192k is where it starts to sound good with 320k being near CD.

    Then try a 64k AAC stream and it sounds fine. 64k AAC is more like 192k mp3.

    32k AAC is almost tolerable in AAC. 64K is high quality if you find those stations.

    I like AAC because it will still play when you lose high speed internet.

    It's most likely the same as what Xbox Music is/was

    I feel like Groove Music (on Windows 10 on my laptop) sounds terrible. It's fuzzy and murky on tracks that I know shouldn't be; the fuzziness comes in and out. I've tested it against the very same songs in Spotify, and it's so much clearer on Spotify. I am pretty upset about this, since I love to listen to music while I work, and I have like, 18 months of paid subscription to Groove music left. The crappy sound quality is so distracting that I don't end up using this service, and go to Spotify and have to listen to ads instead. This was never the case with Xbox Music, so I hope there is a fix or something. I wouldn't recommend switching to Groove now.
