If you are a Google Play Music subscriber, you will be glad to know that there is now a desktop app for Windows. Well, it’s unofficial – but it’s better than nothing.
The app is really nice, and includes some sweet features such as:
- Supports media keys (play, pause, next, previous)
- Desktop notifications on track change
- Dark theme
- Task bar media controls (media controls embedded into the taskbar)
- Smooth scrolling and overlay scrollbars for a nicer User Experience
Samuel Attard, the developer of the app stated:
“I was getting fed up with searching for the one chrome tab with Google Music open or having to have the browser open just to play music. So I made a stand alone application for Google Play Music. It also has media control support so play / pause and volumes controls work via keyboard presses (If your keyboard has those keys). The whole thing is Open Source, if you are interested you can check out the releases section of my GitHub.“
The app is actually pretty great, but it’s worth noting that it is a web wrapper with some features such as dark theme support. Nonetheless, if you have been waiting for a desktop app for Google Play Music, you can finally have one. Head over to GitHub to get the app.
