After years of waiting, the Anniversary Update brings the ability to listen to your favorite music in the background when you are playing any video games on Xbox One console. Currently you can only use Cast, Pandora, or Microsoft’s Groove Music from the Windows Store to do that. Groove Music can play music from OneDrive stored files on your account, but you might would like to find a way with Google Play Music and here is the how to tutorial for that without rooting the device.
