Google Play Music on Android is receiving an update and it’s bringing with it some much needed improvements to the Chromecast support. According to Google the Chromecast support has been completely overhauled in this latest version which brings a few improvements and one new feature.
The new version will let you play back tracks without stoppage in between, and you can also have your music play track after track with no gap. The final feature is a good one which lets you leave the house or turn your phone off after initiating playback without the music stopping. The full feature list is in the ‘What’s New’ section here:
We’ve completely overhauled our Chromecast integration:
- No more stoppage of playback in between songs
- Gapless playback support now enabled over Cast
- Music will continue playing even if your phone turns off or if you need to leave your amazing house party (brought to you by Unexpected Best Night Ever Radio†) to pick up additional supplies
