Groove Replacement on Android?

I am hoping to get some advice on an alternative to access the music I have stored in my OneDrive. I noticed that the Groove app is going away in Decemeber. Any suggestions are welcome! 🙂

    <p>Spotify, of course. But presently I use Deezer, mostly because my mobile service carrier offers zero consumption of data when using it. I discovered Deezer is very good. </p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#322523">In reply to Captain_Eric:</a></em></blockquote><p>I was thinking Spotify can't access music in OneDrive. Is that not the case now?</p>

    <p>Get OneSync and use it to sync your OneDrive music files to your phone. Then play the files in MediaMonkey. All the benefits of local files with the convenience of sync'd files.</p>

    <p>If you want OneDrive music, I would suggest CloudPlayer as it can sync (and stream from) your OneDrive collection. I've been using it for the past few months since they announced the discontinuation of Groove Music on Android. The only issue I have with CloudPlayer is that it doesn't seem to pick up metadata changes to songs after they've been synced the first time. So you change the album art or correct the artist name and the new art/name won't show up in cloudplayer even if you resync your collection. You have to remove the file from OneDrive, sync your collection, then put that file back, and sync again.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#322630">In reply to SWCetacean:</a></em></blockquote><p>I have been using CloudPlayer too. Switched back to Groove until the end of its support but will most likely be spending the $8 for the pro version once Groove is dead.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#322630">In reply to SWCetacean:</a></em></blockquote><p>You can directly change the metadata in CloudPlayer if you want to make a correction. You can also sync the albums/artists/playlists you want to your device.</p><p>You'll need the pro version but you can test it one month for free.</p>
