Google Play Music finally available for download!
The official Google app lands on the App Store to take advantage of its new music streaming service: Google Play Music
When the app is opened, the graphical interface is immediately presented with the “Listen Now” screen where a selection of your songs will be available, loaded on the virtual library of Google Play Music, ready for immediate listening; from here you will also be advised on which songs you can listen to based on your common habits.
The graphics are compatible with iOS 7 but at times it turns out to be slightly invasive, nothing annoying anyway.
By opening the side menu you can access your complete music collection, your playlists and the Instant Mix section.
Instant Mix is a function very similar to that offered by iTunes Radio, that is, select an artist, a song or an album from your library and the app will build a sort of playlist or radio station based on the affinity of genres, artists etc … that characterize your songs. It will then be up to you, selecting whether you like a song or not, decide whether to listen to it again in the future in the mix or not.
A huge flaw I found is this: loading my music library that I had on iTunes, within Play Music, I noticed, with profound bewilderment, that many songs that were not present in the collection offered by Google for sale, are been uploaded in a different language! Let me explain: I had the soundtrack of the Lion King in Italian, and I found it on Google Play Music in French! Really amazing!
For this I decided to put Google Play Music in the drawer and delete it from all my devices.
Failed in full.
However, here is the complete description of the app, which you can download at the following link:
