Groove Music is getting the proverbial final nail in the coffin. It already ended the Groove Music Pass streaming service back in 2017 but did allow users to stream their own tracks stored in OneDrive. That will no longer be possible after the end of this month. It has been confirmed that Groove Music OneDrive streaming will end on March 31st.

Microsoft has confirmed that it will no longer be possible for Groove Music users to stream their own tracks that are stored in OneDrive from March 31st. It has provided additional details about this change in a new FAQ page on the support site.

Music stored in users’ OneDrive will cease to sync with Groove Music on March 31st, 2019. Data that’s stored in the music service is going to be deleted up to 30 days after that. Users can rest assured that their music will still be available in OneDrive and their downloaded music and playlists will still be available in the Groove Music app.

“OneDrive music streaming in Groove Music will be retired,” Microsoft says. This doesn’t mean that the tracks stored in OneDrive can’t be played using the cloud storage service’s own web player. However, it will not be possible to stream them in the cloud through Groove Music. So the only option that users have now if they want to keep listening to music in Groove is to download their entire collection and save it locally on the device they use for this service.
