Google Play Music
Are you enjoying the built-in music player that comes pre-loaded on all new devices that are running the Android mobile operating system? If you are, then you’ll be glad to know that this app, dubbed officially as Google Play Music, has just been updated by Google once again. The latest update rolled in today, and it is now on version 4.5.9. So what exactly has been added — or removed — from the Google Play Music app as part of this recent update? A few new features and necessary bug fixes.

The changelog states that the latest version of Google Play Music now allows users to enjoy the following: new default album art, continuous music playback for instant mixes beyond 25 tracks, the ability to shuffle entire albums, playlists, or artists, the addition of a Previous button to the widget, and Pinning progress on album and playlist pages.

The update also brings a much-needed fix for freezing issues that have been affecting owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3. So if you are an avid user of the app on your own GS3, then make it a point to update to the latest version of Google Play Music as soon as possible. Check out more info about the app via the Google Play link that’s available below.
