No Playlist For XBOX One Friends

Awaiting the release of Forza Horizon 3 with all sorts of anticipation, we decided to put together a video game racing playlist. We of course created it in Microsoft's Groove Service being the music streaming service currently available on XBOX One and fully integrated with the video game.

Shane, Karl and I collaborated for a good couple weeks. Even went as far as to recall tunes we used in prior video game racers being sure to include our all-time favorites along with a fresher crop of material. Prob the most effort we've put into something together outside of the weekly podcast.

Problem is Microsoft Groove doesn't have the functionality to follow another user's playlist.

We honestly didn't see that one coming. Made the assumption that we'd be able to share it out with readers and listeners and they could then click and follow. Voila, would just show up in their copy of Forza Horizon 3. Nope.

Realizing Groove is still young in comparison to other music streaming services, we're optimistic that Microsoft will add the ability to follow eventually. We created and shared a playlist that you can't use in your XBOX One without recreating it fully. We did list out all the bands and tunes however if you'd like to do the work and add all 43 songs to a new playlist in Groove.

Until they add the ability to follow, assuming they intend to make following another user's playlist possible, consider using our Spotify version of the same racing playlist. It's applicable to all video game racers and works on your PlayStation 4.

When Groove is ready, we're ready. Playlist is in there also.
