Finally Done Right
A while ago Google purchased Songza, and I have been awaiting the day when they would add its features to their Music app. That day has come, and the transition is almost seamless. Since I used Google to login to Songza, it recognized the music preferences from Songza, and suggested stations were populated with artists I enjoyed automatically. Genres and moods are identical, and the Concierge has been ported over. There's only one thing missing - Favorites weren't ported over or shared. It's going to take time to manually re-add these stations. Ads on stations remain unobtrusive and stations don't try to force new and popular artists into stations that they don't belong in, unlike some other music streaming services. Awesome App, now please don't screw it up Google!
At least 2 things need work
I really like this app, it is easy to navigate and I use it often. The thing that drives me nuts is that the pictures in the artist section of my library are all wonky, they don't fit the round frames for one thing, and most of the pics there are just dumb and random album pictures I've never seen. Just use the ones I have. The pics in the album section are perfect.
Also, most of my greatest hits albums are mixed up with each other. When I choose a song, another song plays. Frustrating!
Please fix issues and the app will get my fifth star!
Why the zoomed artwork?
This works well to play the tracks I have stored on the Google service. I have one complaint and one feature request.
Why is the artwork zoomed on the main display? I get a closeup of the middle of the image on the main screen, and a tiny little thumbnail of the whole image in the corner of the screen. I would like to see the whole image not zoomed - or at least to have the ability to zoom out and/or pan the image.
I can create playlists within the application. I would like to import playlists I have created outside of this program on my computer and then play them back on my phone.
