    It's working for me on a 640. I say, "Cortana, play (name of artist) and she plays it.

    Now with the latest software update (1/6/16), 950XL still can't get Cortana to play playlists or albums on SD card.

    Same issue here, 950XL with SD card. I have copied my entire music library to SD card. I can open Groove with Cortana voice activation, but then I need to navigate to artist or playlist.

    I also have an issue where Cortana will "Play Music" "Pause Music" "Next Track", but will only return a bing search if "Play <Artist>" or "Play <Track>"

    So I did a test.

    I copied over some albums from my SD card to my phone using files app.

    Went into groove and waited for a few seconds for it to detect the new tracks.

    Cortana then works with "Play <Artist>" "Play <Track>" etc.

    She will even play them when I copy them back to my SD card.


    Soon as I reboot Cortana reverts to a bing search instead.

    So SD card does work, until you need to restart your phone. Guess this needs to be a fix.

    Cortana wont play music on my 950 XL at all any more. It used to a few builds back but now when I say "play" anything, it just opens a bing search. :(

    Same issue here, 950XL on 10586.164, all music on SD card. I can say "Shuffle my music" and it usually works. But asking to play a specific song always fails and gives Bing results instead.

    In feedback, I upvoted "Cortana doesn't take commands to play music stored on SD card". If there's a more popular feedback item on this let me know and I'll upvote that.
