- Note that the 6-player Dance Crew is only available on the Xbox One version of Just Dance 2014 and is considered the classic version, while the four-player Dance Crew is considered an alternate.
- On the Xbox One from Just Dance 2014 onward, most routines allow for six players to play at once. This is not the case for dance crews, as six cannot be divided evenly by four.
- Just Dance 2016 allows players on 8th-Generation consoles to obtain the use of smartphones and the Just Dance Controller App for scoring, a feature that allows up to six players, even for Dance Crews. This is not the case for the Xbox One’s Kinect.
- Starting with Just Dance 2016, with the use of a smartphone or a Wii/Move remote on the Wii U and PlayStation 4, multiple players can select a singular dancer. Previously, only one player was admitted to each available dancer.
- Although Just Dance Wii U has fewer Dance Crews than Just Dance Wii 2, Just Dance Wii U has more Dance Crews that are exclusive to the Japanese series.
- On Just Dance 3, the scores and player names for Dance Crews are displayed at the top of the screen, unlike other modes where they're displayed on the sides.
