Did you upload your music into the existing music folder on OneDrive, or did you create a new folder yourself and named it 'music'?


Yeah, I noticed it (btw thank you mods for moving it to a more proper thread)! :D

As to your question, I have not created that folder. It was there by default (on the web version of OneDrive, when it is empty, it gives a message on the background talking about placing my music there in order to play it anywhere with Groove).

It works for me too, but only on the Windows 10 PC app version (I can create playlists, I can play any song which I upload on OneDrive on them), but that may be because they are also stored locally on the OneDrive folders.

Could you maybe try and test this with a USB? Take a song, move it to your USB so it's not on your computer anymore and upload it to OneDrive. See if it still works on Windows 10.
Have you also checked the songlist instead of your playlists on the Groove Music App?

I just tried this (I had to pause syncing in the OneDrive client, since whatever I upload on the "web" OneDrive, it automatically gets downloaded to the local OneDrive folders). The result is the same as in the other two devices. No songs. So the problem exists also on the PC app.

Yes I have, nothing on the songlist / albums on either (now all 3) app versions.

I'm afraid this has to do with it not being available in your country then. I don't see why it wouldn't work otherwise. I was thinking of an older Groove Music App version, since it has been updated tied in with Background Music support, but I take that would not be the case on all of your devices.
I'm out of ideas for now, I'm sorry man.

No problem mate, thank you for taking the time to help me out, really!!! :D

Guess I will have to stick with Background Music feature (though obviously Groove is out of the question, Pandora is also not available, so my only options are other apps who offer this).

Kinda feels bad though. I was really looking forward to this feature of FH3, but I guess Greece is still not an important market for MS to offer the majority of their services/apps.

Funny thing is yesterday I downloaded the groove app again and it worked. I'm guessing they updated it since the demo was being released. Now I have to see what other songs I wanna add but gotta check out the app more to see what I can find. Since I have the free month to check it out.

I don't know if you use the Xbox Store often, or any of its services, but another thing you could try is simply set your region to UK or US. I've played like that for months before we had the option to change region and language independently because I didn't want everything to be in Dutch. I think I even got the same updates as everyone else while I had it like that. Just take note you don't buy anything in that store, and if updates don't automatically pop up for you, change it once a week, update and change back to UK.
Try it and see if it works.

I am in the same boat with you (I am more comfortable with having every setting / menu / etc in English rather than my native Greek) that's why I have already set every region setting to US (even before I discovered this "issue")

I guess that changing the region on the devices doesn't work (in case someone reads these posts and has the same issue).

Well that is strange. Are you sure it's still on US? Maybe it changed automatically according to your location when the update happened.
If it is, maybe give UK a shot? Who knows .. Also try deleting the app and reinstalling it as said above.

Believe me, uninstalling - reinstalling the Groove app in all 3 of my devices was one the first things to do! :D Didn't work eventually.

I will give changing to UK region a shot though.

EDIT: Changing the region to UK did not work in any of my devices.

Going by the Demo it looks like Groove has to be unlocked? or is it just for the demo? If it has to be unlocked have they said how far into the game it is?

Yes it does have to be unlocked. I think someone somewhere said/wrote you'll unlock them early on in the game.

Or, if you have already created a playlist in Groove, can the station be unlocked after you pick your starter car at the start of the game?

I'm already getting myself a playlist all set up for Forza Horizon 3, I've got 72 tracks of "I don't have a reason to listen to the in game music anymore!"

Youre a long way from paradise. Say goodbye, youre the boy who cried
Im the wolf outside your door and youre in trouble

Don't get your hopes up. Every press preview video showed the first 30 minutes of the full game, which lets you choose between the 4 exact same cars, as well as the same music stations after. Groove Music Station will be unlocked later through campaign, but still early on.

This is great. One more piece in the puzzle.

1. Torana
2. Choose the character wearing a flannel
3. AC/DC on the radio through Groove channel
4. Slow laps of Surfers at night.

All that's missing is a bottle of Jack and a pack of Winnie reds to complete Bogan Simulator 1986.

I am really amazed for Groove Music to be included in a game like this, nothing is better than to cruise to your favorite songs and playlists (although I will be just running Spotify on background ;D), instead of hearing the same songs over and over again like in FH1 which was the last Forza game I played actively.

Will Groove music stations be specific to players/account holders or will it be possible for friends to hear my Groove music?

Example: My friend co-ops with me during my Horizon Festival races. If he should switch to the Groove Music station will "MY" Groove Music stream on his end, or will he hear his own specific Groove music?

Looking forward to this. Going to get some ambient synth pop blasting as the sun rises over a crest I'm doing 200mph over ;)

I am not sure how groove radio will work. Will you need an active paid membership to use it,

Or will it be like the Xbox One custom music where you don't need a paid membership to use your own onedrive music?

Wow.. I never realized people actually use and PAY for Groove. I thought we'd all use Apple Music guys.
