Google Play Music update brings playlist-related radio stations

Google-Play-Music

A few updates have hit the Google Play Store in quick succession that bring some welcomed functionality to the Google Play Music app for Android.

The first of which sees the ability to pin radio stations for listening to them offline when you don’t have an internet connection, as well as bringing some improvements to the user interface to make it easier to navigate. For example, there is a new “Play Next” option included in the menu.

Following on from this, Google have issued yet another update today which allows users to listen to radio stations based on user-generated playlists. This will assist in music discovery by taking music that a user likes and recommending new content based on their current interests.

Here’s the full changelog for both incremental updates.

v5.4.1413N
* You can now start radio stations based on your playlists
v5.4.1409N
* Added the ability to pin radio stations. You’ll now be able to listen to your offline radio stations even when you don’t have any connection
* Added ‘Play next’ in the context menu
* Lots of shuffle and unshuffle fixes
* The queue understands and shows what you are playing from (playlist, album, etc)
