Google Play Music gets updated with Material Design

After the announcement of Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google apps are bound to get updated with ‘Material Design’ language which is the essence of Lollipop. The updated Google Play Music was leaked couple of days ago and now it’s official.



Google has pushed an update for the Google Play Music app just now. It is now more bright and has a colourful UI obviously accustomed with Material Design. The Album Art now uses larger images and the app has been given an orange theme treatment. The app now also boasts off a new logo.

Icons have now become small and the typography has also changed. The hamburger menu that was seen even on the Play Store is now available for Play Music. The individual track playback interface has new iconography for playback and ratings, along with new queue, repeat, and shuffle icons. “I am feeling lucky radio” shortcut is now seen on top of Recommendations. Lets see what’s there in the change log of Google Play Music v5.7.1717Q.


  • Pick the perfect radio station for any situation easily on Listen Now (US/CA All Access only)
  • Search for radio stations based on mood or activity e.g. ‘napping’, ‘jogging’, ‘dance party’ or ‘brand new music’ (All Access only)
  • New Listen Now that shows recently played music and improved recommendations
  • Read descriptions of albums and playlists on newly designed landing pages.
