From Uber and even Microsoft Health, over the past few months, Microsoft has steadily improved on Cortana’s skills by adding new connections to Cortana’s Connected Services.  Thanks to a tip from our reader Marc, we have just learned that Groove Music also recently joined this list, possibly hinting at more Cortana and Groove integration in the future.

While it is not clear what this listed service does just yet, Groove does join a list of currently connected services such as Dynamics CRM, Groove Music, LinkedIn, Microsoft Health, Office 365,, Uber, Wunderlist, and Xbox Live. Given recent announcements that Cortana Skills Kit will soon allow developers to build 3rd party connections, Microsoft obviously has big plans for its virtual assistant. We will be keeping an eye on Groove and Cortana’s continued integration and update you with more information as it emerges.
