What's New in Version 3.14.1007
A WHOLE NEW EXPERIENCE
* A single tap will start the right music for any moment of your day.
* Using the power of Google, get recommendations based on where you are and why you're listening — from relaxing at home, to powering through work, to destressing at the airport, and everything in between. And it’s easy to find more to love with in-depth recommendations based on artists you're a fan of or music you've just discovered.
* Subscribers: with automatic offline coverage, we'll save your most recent songs (and some recommended tunes too) so you can listen offline, even if you forget to download them yourself.
Great app but missing features after new update
1. I use the subway to get to work, so I do most of my music listening offline with my own synced music. With the old app, when I turned "downloaded only" on, it would show all my recently played music in order but would just exclude music that wasn't on my device. I used this feature ALL THE TIME. Now when I switch to that mode, it only shows me my synced playlists. Google, please bring back recent activity to offline playback!!
2. This app seems to negatively affect battery life. I only really play my synced songs, so it shouldn't consume much battery compared to streaming the music. However, over the past 7 days my cellular usage for the app is at 100mb (no streaming whatsoever) and it has consumed 15% of my battery. I play music for an hour every day during my commute. It should not be one of my top users of my battery life with just playing synced music in the background but it is. I noticed that if "downloaded only" is set to true (with the old app), battery usage is much better but with problem #1, I can't use the recent activity feature.
Needs a lot of polish.
I REALLY want to love this app and service. The ability to upload and listen to my entire music library whenever and wherever for FREE is a incredible idea. However the app prevents this service from truly being a top tier service. First my music collection is buried in a sub menu and not intuitive to get to. Second when I view my tracks, the entire title is never shown. This is especially annoying when trying to view podcast tracks, and the only way to get the entire title of a track to show is to start playing a track then activate control center and view the track title from there. Also for some reason on some of my songs in MY library, google will replace them with a clean version of the song despite having the “block explicit songs” disabled. Also Google music lacks the ability to create “smart” playlists or automatically update playlists from my iTunes library. If google fixes these issues then Google Music will be a top tier app and a force that other music service providers will have to be reckoned with.
There's a problem here...
When on the app, I was enjoying the new interface, when I went to an artist page, then to the page for an album, to find that when on an album page, (if you have any tracks off the album in your library) it will only show the songs in your library. No, I am not searching the "In My Library" section of albums. I know I am not on downloaded only mode because when you check albums of which you have no tracks in your library, it shows the full album. I know that the full album is still there because if you go to the artist page, then go to the top songs, then tap on a song from an album that you have tracks downloaded from, and tap go to album, the album is right there. When this issue is solved, you get an easy 5 stars.
