Google Play Music is undergoing a major update improving looks and functionality. The update will add a new section to the “Listen Now” page that’s a streamlined take on Songza’s Concierge functionality. Depending on what time it is or what you’re likely to be doing at that moment, Play Music will present you with a list of activities (working out, getting ready for work, sleeping, studying, etc.) designed to match your daily routine and mood. However, this feature is only available to All Access subscribers. Stations can be reordered to your liking and any song can be cut on a whim. You can also launch a radio station based on any song you hear, or add it to your regular Play Music library for easy access later.
The update also brings Google’s Material Design visual style to Play Music. Among the changes are bolder colors, larger album art for recommendations, and smooth, fluid animations across the board.
