  1. Groove Music - will it replace existing metadata in local files?


    I've done some very in-depth tagging on my local music library, so I want to make sure none of that work gets overwritten. I've just started using the Groove Music player and I see the following option: "Automatically retrieve and update missing album art and metadata".

    Now I'm not really "missing" any metadata per se, but I'd like to see the artist thumbnails and biographical information, along with the slideshows that display in the full "now playing" view. I'm assuming that I'd get this if I turned the above option on?

    If that is the case, I just want to make absolutely sure that Groove would leave all my existing metadata (including album art) untouched. As long as nothing is replaced, I'm good.

    The wording of the option sounds like it behaves the way I would want it to - just want to be sure.

    :)

  2. Edit metadata in Groove

    Unfortunately, it looks like if it came from a online source, it won't allow you to edit the metadata. I imagine it's because there should be no reason to edit metadata from a curated source like the Groove music pass since they should be correct already.

    I copied music from my desktop that was originally ripped from CDs years ago that I added metadata to on my own, and those are the ones I'm able to edit. I'm unable to edit metadata for songs that are on my OneDrive, even if I download it to my device through
    Groove.

  3. Artist Image not seen on Groove

    Are you in a region which supports Groove music pass? If no, artists image are not available in your region.

    If yes, open groove settings and make sure that metadata download is enabled.

    Groove Music - will it replace existing metadata in local files?

    Backup the folders you keep your work in and save them in a secure place, then you are sure you wont miss anything
    latter on. Do this on a regular basis.
