Google Play Music adds gapless playback, automatic Instant Mixes

Share

Google Play Music app

Google is expanding its media umbrella to cover more countries, and it’s marking the occasion with a new version of the Google Play Music app for Android and Google TV. While there’s no explicit mention of the newly opened regional access, the update does add long-requested support for gapless audio playback: Jelly Bean users will hear smooth transitions between tracks, although it works best when all the music is offline. The tweak also turns listening into more of a hands-off process, as it now automatically generates Instant Mixes (instead of requiring input) and lets us cache free, purchased, recently added and thumbs-up songs. If you’ve refused to sully that DJ set or Pink Floyd album by playing it through Android’s stock music player, it’s time to give the app another chance.
