Google Play Music updated, gets offline SD storage

Google-Play-Music

Google has been busy lately updating it’s Android App lineup; Google Play Music is next up on the list with features which will add to the functionality of Google Now.

Google has added the ability to shuffle all songs from an artist in All Access which mimics the Shuffle Play or Radio feature found in other music streaming services such as Spotify or Rdio.

In addition, Google now allows up to ten authorized devices on your account to access your music collection, meaning no more having to de-authorize your allocated devices if you have multiple Android handsets you want to access Google Play Music.

Further functionality, and something I’ve personally been waiting for, is the ability to store offline music on a device’s SD storage card. This is currently only on KitKat and Google mentions it has included ‘experimental’ support for older devices.

The update also brings a few UI updates which makes it easier to share what you’re listening to, together with new controls for adding tracks to playlists. Of course, there’s the usual bug fixes too, but overall a minor update but some important features nonetheless.
