Google Updates Play Music with Songza

Posted by at 12:25 pm on October 21, 2014

Google today pushed out an update to its Play Music service that adds new, curated play lists.

The refreshed service gains its tools from Songza, which Google purchased over the summer. Play Music now offers a playlist- and song-recommendation engine that uses variables such as the time of day and location to cultivate selections. Google says users of the app will be prompted to play music for a time of day, mood, or activity. Each station has been created by real people to make sure they truly match the mood or activity at hand.

Users can download stations for offline playback, see upcoming song selections, and add, remove, or reorder tracks on a whim. Google also updated its Listen Now web site to make it easier to discover and listen to new music.

Last, Google Play Music now wears the Material Design look that Google is putting on most of its apps.

The new Google Play Music app is available to Android and iOS devices, as well as on the web.
