Groove Music

Welcome to the Walkthrough for the Groove Music app, previously called Xbox Music.

This guide will talk you through the 10 achievements which you can get within a few hours without having to pay anything.

That's right. You can complete this for free, although you will have to sign up for the free trial. You can cancel the trial afterwards without paying a thing.

If you have already used the free trial, then unfortunately you are going to have to pay for a month's usage.

Also, you need to have a Kinect for one of the achievements.

So, let's get started.

You will be able to get a few achievements before you are forced to either pay for a subscription or sign up for the free trial, which lasts 30 days. It is up to you if you do that straight away, or if you wait until it forces you to, although to save you getting interrupted, it would be better to sign up straight away.

It is advisable to have the achievement app snapped, so that you can see that progress is being made.

The only other things to know are;

By pulling the cn_LT, you will skip back a track.

By pulling the cn_RT, you will skip to the next track.

When leaving this to grind out the last achievements, you do not need to leave your TV on like some other apps. This will keep going in the background.

It is advisable to snap the achievement app, so that you can see that progress is being made.

First hit your cn_RB to move to Radio and select any artist and start playing a track.

For the first achievement you will need a Kinect. Just alternate between saying "Xbox pause" and "Xbox play" until you get this achievement.

Can't Touch This

Once you have that out of the way, either hold down cn_LT or use an elastic band to hold it in place. This will effectively keep restarting the song, which registers as a new song. Leave it skipping back to get the next three achievements. If you can, connect your controller with a micro USB to stop it from turning off, otherwise you have to keep turning it back on from time to time.

Next, back out to the main home page. Hit cn_RB until you get to the Top Music tab. Select the Top Songs menu on the left which will bring you to the Top Music screen. At the top there are a couple of drop down menus. Select the Genre menu and choose Pop. Then play any song. After a couple of seconds, go back and select a different genre and play a song. Once you have played something from each genre, you will get this achievement.

While hovering over any song from any genre, press cn_A. This will bring up a menu. Select "+Add song" and then "+New playlist". Name the playlist anything you like (for speed pick a random letter). Do this four more times for the next achievement. It can be the same song, just choose different names (letters) for the playlists.

Express Yourself

Create 5 playlists

While playing any song, move the cn_LSu (up). You will then find the options to turn shuffle on and turn repeat on. Toggle each of these on and off ten times until the next two achievements pop. For speed, do one first and then do the othe,r once you get your achievement.

Toggle shuffle 10 times

Now you have just the grinding bit to do. Go to one of your playlists and make sure it just has a couple of songs in it. Turn on repeat and shuffle and press cn_A to start a song playing. Then, using an elastic band, hold down the cn_RT (you can of course do this manually, but you will be there for some time). Then just leave it playing. It will keep skipping to the next song which will count as a song being listened to.

Credit to Itzz Sh0wt1m3 for finding this quicker method.

This will not work on radio.

You will eventually get the next two achievements, although it will take a couple of hours. Again, if you have a micro USB, use it to keep the controller on.

So, that's it. You're done. Don't forget to cancel your free trial so you don't have to pay. To do this go to Xbox.com and you will find it under Subscriptions in the profile menu (hit your gamertag in the top right to bring down the menu).

Congratulations.
