Beginning Dec. 31, Microsoft will stop offering Groove Music passes, at which point remaining subscribers will be refunded.

Announcing the closure of Groove Music, Microsoft said customers wanted "access to the best streaming service, the largest catalogue of music, and a variety of subscriptions".

The ability to move your music over to Spotify hasn't gone live just yet, but it'll be available to Windows Insiders this week and will go into wider roll out next week.

If you want to download Spotify, there are three separate apps, including ones for Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, and Windows Phone 8 or higher.

Microsoft also mentioned that Groove Music Pass customers might be eligible for a 60-day free trial of Spotify Premium, depending on terms and conditions as follows.

Effective immediately, Microsoft will cease the sale of Groove Music passes. An update to Groove on Windows 10 next week will provide the tools to do so.

As for the over/under , bettors are expecting plenty of fireworks in this one, with 84 percent going over the 49.5-point total. They gained just 3.9 yards a carry in a game that many expected to be dominated by offenses and home-town icon Jay Ajayi .

Although Microsoft's music streaming and buying service won't live to see 2018, its ghost will linger as a music player. Groove Music has been languishing for quite some time, as evidenced by regular and aggressive promotions meant to grow the service. It informs us that Spotify on Windows provides a range of popular genre playlists, and personalised music experiences, across a very wide range of devices, with a music catalogue of over 30 million songs.

Microsoft plans to release an update for Groove Music that includes the option to move music to Spotify.

In news that will likely come as no shock to anyone with common sense, Microsoft have announced that they're mercy killing their Groove Music platform in favour of partnering with Spotify.

If you're a current Groove Music Pass subscriber, firstly hello.

Groove Music Pass will remain available until December 31 when it completely shuts down. Microsoft had hoped to breathe new life into the service that allowed customers to stream music, as well as play downloaded music from Microsoft's OneDrive cloud storage service.
