If you haven’t noticed already, then there’s an update to Google Play Music waiting in the Google Play Store bringing the app to version 5.8.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Navigation drawer now full-height
  • Bio and history on artist page
  • Back/previous button now on notification  (lock screen and notifications), previously only in expanded view
  • Library tabs are orange to match the header
  • Library scroll bar now starts above the tabs
  • Songs UI in My Library now a much more attractive card
  • The entire header and tabs hide now when scrolling
  • New slide-up animation when selecting playlists
  • In the artists tab if there isn’t an artist hero image, it will now use album covers instead of a grey icon
