First off most of the reviews here are years old. The app has changed a lot since then. It's UI has changed quite a bit from the screenshots shown here as well.
Honestly I think this app is quite good for managing and listening to locally stored music libraries. I've never had a issue with it scanning and adding all my music to the app. I just go into settings, tell it where my music collection is, and it adds it all. It's all organized and labeled correctly. Has album art for everything (including collections I put together my self and added my own album art to). It even auto downloads the covers to some albums that itunes can't find the cover for.
Functionality wise it works perfectly fine. It's fast, easy to navigate, looks nice etc. I really don't see what there is to hate. It seems to support plenty of file formats. Most of my stuff is MP3 like a lot of people but for the bands I REALLY like I have FLAC files and it handles those just the same as well.

Alright before you roast me because of my star count please consider what I have to say.
Groove Music is preinstalled to every Windows 10 PC and of course, being from Microsoft and all, it has always been shamed and compared to its predecessor WMP (Windows Media Player, which is obviously discontinued and its painfully not optimized and has not been updated since 2009)
To be honest, there are some benefits to using Groove Music:
Of course, it has its cons. And there are a lot (though for me, I can only list a few):
To sum up, Groove Music is a decent music player. It just works. But it won't suit the taste of those who want more functionality and for those who don't like Microsoft in general.
There's not a single good reason to use this program. Since you're on this website, I strongly recommend that you consider the alternatives.
because it is easy to play song
Microsoft Groove Music service has been discontinued.
it is Preinstalled on Windows 10 but it runs very slow and often timed out, it also has spammy message of groove music pass
Now that Groove Music Pass is being discontinued and music is being removed from the Windows store, the only viable options left for Windows phones are going to be streaming music services like Spotify or the tedious and expensive route of buying music from other stores like iTunes and then importing them to OneDrive so that they can then be streamed through the Groove app. It's sad to see such an unrivaled service discontinued, and even more sad to have no alternative for buying music.
I know your comment is a couple of years old, but there is an update on streaming services in regards to Groove Music.
"The Groove Music OneDrive streaming service will be retired on March 31, 2019. After that date, you won’t be able to stream your OneDrive music through the Groove Music app."
Streaming from OneDrive was the only reason I used Groove.
