Google has released an update to its popular Play Music app, bringing some user interface changes, the ability to cache/download music to an SD card (if supported by your device) and a standard Share menu, allowing users to share their music tastes with their friends and family.
Support for caching music to SD card has been one of the most in-demand features since Google Play Music launched. Previously, the app cached its music to the internal storage, which on some devices might very quickly leave users with no available space for anything else. With this update, users with compatible handsets can leverage large SD card storage capacities for their music, potentially enabling offline storage of 30 or more gigabytes of music.
Further, the previous sharing option — which only allowed users to share their music with Google+ — has been replaced with the standard Android sharing options, allowing users to share their music with any compatible app, including (but not limited to) email, Hangouts, Facebook, Twitter and any other application supporting sharing of text.
It appears that this update began rolling out to Play Music users overnight, but it certainly isn’t universally available just yet. Keep an eye on the Play Store for updates!
