Playlist sharing, music profiles and design
Please make "all access" subscriber playlist sharing between friends much more accessible from my iPhone. Currently, I have to go on my computer, make my playlist public, and then send the link. I should be able to search a friend/family members account and see the music they've listened to (maybe make an option to make your profile public from your device). Even on the computer, I want to be able to search a friend and see their music if they have a public profile. Also, please use a "bottom navigation" bar as seen in the material design guideline suggestions. The side panel may take up less screen real estate, but in a music app, I believe it is much more crucial to be able to switch between top level views quickly. "My library"/ "playlists" of songs and podcasts should be much more up front and accessible and I think bottom navigation would help. I also think there should be more of a focus on curations. I think they are great and they should be given more focus overall. One more critique is the music artwork screen consistency. If you're going to make it immersive screen, then stick with that. Either keep the status bar in there or take it out. Half the time it's full screen half the time the status bar is there. Also the status bar color is different in different views. Just a heavy user's suggestions.
Way More Glitchy Than Songza Was
Google Play Music used to be Songza, which was great. Songza had a wider variety of songs, and didn't randomly shut down every few songs, mid-song, like GPM does now. I have a few playlists that are virtually unplayable because they only start about 40% of the time and even when they do start, I'll get to listen to about 3 songs max before I get a "Can't play now-please try again later" message, and I'm forced to start a different playlist or just listen to my iTunes, which is honestly much easier and never glitches out on me. This app is great in principle, but so glitchy that it makes the listening experience extremely frustrating.
I love using Google music! But if only... There was a way to ask Siri to play something using Google music. OR put the ability to say "OK Google" on the Google music app or even on the Google search app allow it to play music from Google music when using an iOS device. I can ask Siri to open Google search and then I can say "OK Google". So why not a hands free Google music? That would make my day since I sometimes get bored of listening to the radio while I am driving. 👍🏼👍🏼
