Zune users won’t be able to stream or download content to their device from the Zune music service after that date and content purchased with DRM may not play if the license can’t be renewed. However, Zune devices will still function as music players and any MP3 content that users own on the Zune device will remain there. Users will also be able to transfer music to and from your Zune player.
The current Zune Music Pass subscribers will be migrated to the company’s Groove service. The Groove is the new version of both the Zune Music Pass and the Xbox Music Pass which comes with all new features and can be used across all your Groove-enabled devices including Windows 10, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS, Android, Sonos, and through a web browser on your PC.
Users that owns Zune’s monthly or 3-month plans, Microsoft will switch those users to Groove’s $9.99 a month plan. Yearly subscriptions will be converted to annual Groove Music Passes at $99.90 a year.
