Google Play Music Freshened With New Web Interface
Google Play Music has received an improvement to its web interface, transitioning its appearance closers to what you’d find on an Android phone or tablet.
Artists now have their very own circular avatars (similar to Google+), which you can view when browsing your library. The music queue has been improved to offer better control to its arrangement. It now can be accessed from the music note button in the bottom-right corner of the screen. Additionally, the pop-out mini-player has also been revamped to look identical to the widget you get to see on Android.
When launched for the firs time, the left-side panel is hidden by default, which can be toggled through a menu button just like on a mobile device. The search box is now more prominent on the top of the screen, as are the deeper orange colors splashed on the interface. Google has also thrown in a new browser favicon that matches the new Android icon.
Those familiar with the older design might have to spend a little time getting used to the new interface. According to reports, the new design does have a few stutters here and there. However, it’s nothing that bothersome and Google will probably be ironing these issues out in a future update.
