A new update to Google Play Music is rolling out today, bringing several bug fixes and it even adds a few new features, like the ability to manage and deauthorize devices directly from the app.

For those that don’t already know, Play Music has a 10-device limitation, which you can reach pretty quickly if you regularly update your tablets and handsets. To remove older devices that are no longer actively in use, you previously had to go directly to the web, so this is a welcome change.

Another pretty significant new feature is the addition of offline radio, which lets you pre-cache an entire radio station for listening to when don’t have access to an active Internet connection. Aside from this, there seem to be several bug fixes, some changes to the sidebar that makes it easier to access certain settings, and even a ‘Play Next’ button next to songs and albums.

In usual Google fashion, the latest update to Google Play Music is a staged rollout, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see an update directly through Google Play. Thankfully, you can always grab the APK manually and update for yourself by clicking here.

For those that have grabbed the update, what do you think of the latest changes?
