Microsoft has changed the name of Xbox Music and Xbox Video.


Xbox Music has been renamed to Groove, and Xbox Video is now called Movies & TV. Both apps have had their names changed ahead of their Windows 10 launch.

Groove will not bring back the cancelled free, ad-supported version of the app. It will simply change the app’s current name and keep the $9.99 monthly subscription as the only option to access the service.

Xbox One, which is set to get a major UI overhaul in the fall, will undoubtedly follow suit.

As for Movies & TV, the new destination consolidates all previous Xbox Video content into one place.

You can learn more about each of those changes through the Windows blog.
