Microsoft recently announced that the company is retiring the Groove Music streaming service and it is being replaced by Spotify. The Groove Music Pass subscription service will end later this year, after which you will no longer be able to use the Microsoft’s music streaming service.
While Microsoft is allowing the Groove Music Pass users to migrate to Spotify, the company still hasn’t confirmed whether or not the 100 GB of additional OneDrive storage that came with the Groove Music Pass subscription will be reduced to the standard plan after the transition.
A German site now claims that Microsoft is sending an email to a small group of users, the email explains that the OneDrive storage won’t be reduced to the free standard plan and the Groove Music Pass subscribers will still be able to use the additional free storage until December 31, 2018. The official FAQ page has also confirmed that a user will be contacted by Microsoft if the company ever plans to extend the additional OneDrive storage.
“As part of your subscription, you’ve got extra storage on OneDrive. In order for you to have enough cloud storage to suit your needs during this transition, your 100GB of bonus storage on OneDrive will remain free until December 31, 2018. After December 31, 2018, your storage will return to the limit for the free standard Tariff reduced, the email reads.
As we noted above, Microsoft is not extending the OneDrive storage for all Groove Music Pass subscribers and it remains to be seen whether or not the OneDrive additional storage will be rolled out to all users.
