HOW TO USE
Google play music app offers categories which are designed to fit your mood nd tastes, the songs offered for listening are also chosen in accordance to the time of the day and this is really smart for an app. For example, logging in on a Monday afternoon could offer categories such as big hits, new music, Monday motivation & boost your energy.
When you click on one of the offered categories, you get sub categories which better refine what it is you are going to be listening to. So let us assume you click on the ‘boosting your energy’ category, you get sub categories such as Indie dance party hits, Epic party bangers, pop anthems and more.
So when you click on one of these categories, you would finally get to some music right/ Wrong! Clicking on one of these sub categories opens up even more playlists and it is a bit weird that one has to go so deep into the software in order to enjoy some music but perhaps it does well for the fact that the app is organised. Well after getting into one of the play lists, there are good tracks which make it worth your while.
This is one of the coolest things about this app. Since you sign in with your Google account details, it knows the videos you have recently seen on YouTube and displays songs on the app relating to that. This is nice because it gives the listener that comfort that the app can do some of the work for them. The Google music play app has a multitude of genres including conventional and popular ones such as hip hop, Rock, Classical and the suggestions you receive depend on the genre which you are currently checking out.

ADDING YOUR OWN SONGS
Speaking of things which are awesome, Google play music has a music locker which does an amazing thing. On the free plan, you can upload up to 50,000 of your own songs to the said music locker. If you use chrome, you can upload these songs directly to your browser else, you would need to download Google’s music manager software in order to get your own music to the cloud.
It is important to know that you have access to over 30 million songs on this service and these songs are constantly being updated to give the best listening experience a user could want. The experience is great because despite the fact theta the songs are at such a good quality, the app still streams well on mobile data or Wi-Fi.
There are a lot of things which Google play music download has in its corner. These good features have gathered the app a good following and that is a plus. It has a nice design and once you are registered, it is easy to use and very functional too. Should a few things be added, such as albums like Price’s Purple rain (how can that album, even be M.I.A on this app?), then definitely more people would use it. For now though it is a great source of online music streaming and storage. The fact that it is Google owned means that it will keep getting better and we all look forward to that.
