google music 3

Folks trying out Google’s recently-released Play Music app for iOS will be happy to hear that a new version popped up late last night. The update, which brings the app to 1.1.0.988, brings about a refreshed UI and a handful of new features.

Among the new features is support for ‘I’m feeling lucky’ radio, which builds an instant playlist based on your listening habits, and other new radio options. Users now have access to Genre radio stations and the ability to search for them…

Here’s your full change log:

– UI updated for iOS7
– Added support for I’m feeling lucky radio
– Auto-playlists (including Thumbs Up playlist) added to playlist view
– Genre radio stations added for All Access users
– Added ability to search for genres

Released just a month ago, the Google Play Music app offers access to both Google’s All Access and standard music services. The former works just like Spotify and other like-services, and the latter lets you listen to songs stored in the cloud.

The standard service is completely free, and Google is currently offering a 30-day free trial of its All Access service. Afterwards it’ll cost you $9.99 per month. You can find the latest version of the Google Play Music app in the App Store for free.

    Love this app. It’s nice to have 9K+ songs at my disposal without even touching the internal storage of my phone. All for free too!!! Download it now folks!!!

    Can I listen to songs without using an internet?

    • blastingbigairs

      No you need data or wifi.

      • keshaal

        No, after save the songs to device, you can listen it offline

      • blastingbigairs

        You can I guess, but why?? The whole point is to upload your iTunes library to the google server using their free Music Manager, and then play your music from your device using the app, thus saving precious storage on your device. If you want music on your device, just use iTunes and your device.

        This feature is mainly valuable for All Access users. Same thing on Spotify and Rdio

      • blastingbigairs

        Gotcha. The online feature allows you to upload 10K songs from your iTunes library absolutely free. The downside, no music in the mountains 🙁

      • zach hoppe

        20k songs

      • blastingbigairs

        Yep you’re right!

  • Bryan Sepkowski

    Now it just needs native iPad support

    Google Play music is awesome. But the best app for it is gMusic 2, it’s UI may not be as good, but I like the features it has, like downloading songs when you listen to them, and the equalizer
