Google Play Music Desktop Player is open source on GitHub. This means YOU, the community, gets a say in all the features we implement and you can even get involved and help out.
If you find a bug or want something new, tell us in Gitter or on GitHub and we will see what we can do!!
Being a lightweight, standalone framework we use FAR less resources than having Google Play Music open in a standard chrome tab. This frees up your computer's resources to do things you care about, instead of wasting them on playing music.
Google Play Music Desktop Player adds a level of customization that simply isn't there in the web player. You can change your theme, customize the colors, send your play history straight to last.fm, and it even has a built-in equalizer.
From advanced audio controls to simple song change notifications, this desktop player literally does it all.
Easily control the player from the comfort of your couch. We have apps for iOS and Android. Simply enable the Playback API in your players settings and install the mobile app.
