Download: Honeycomb Music Player from Google I/O

Hello Monday night treat!  XDA member johnnie93 somehow got his hands on what appears to be the Honeycomb music player that was featured last May at Google I/O.  It’s super colorful, appears to have streaming music features built in, and fits the “new UI” that is rumored to be coming with the next OS version.  If this is any indication of what we can expect with Android 3.0 (2.4?) then add me to the list of super excited people.  While this app isn’t fully working, you can see where Google is going with it and now we’ll just have to sit back and wait for this music service to be announced.  Awesome.  

*For ALL users.

Download:  com.google.android.music-1.apk


1.  Download the file from above.
2.  When it finishes, tap on and hit install.
3.  Enjoy!

Cheers Wade!

    guys try to google MIUI music player. it's an awesome music player for android. I tried and like it so much. not as good as poweramp but it has some features that are awesome…mainly option to automatic download of lyrics/pic album.

    Installing this adds an option for “Music Sync” under where your gmail account is in the “Accounts and Syncing” section of settings. I wonder if a pc program is being developed for this, possibly along side picasa? Maybe someone can find out what the phone is tryin to sync to and write a program to temporarily share/sync and a stream music until google releases it.

  • Spitfirefrenzy

    anyone know if the streaming music features are functional with this apk or do they not work yet till the official release?

    Won't install in D1! Getting the message “Application Not Installed”

  • I have it working on my Droid X running GummyJAR, works pretty well except when I try to scroll through the library while it is playing the currently playing track will stutter.

  • Dsgamecube

    Not working on my original Moto Droid – parsing error.

      Download to your desktop then move to your sd card, no folder. Then run it, should be fine

  • Is there an easier way than dragging down the notification bar and clicking the song that's playing to get to the current song playing screen?

    And for those of you who are wondering, there are now lock screen controls (Droid Incredible).

  • warren peace

    Can't add songs to playlists. I get “addtoplaylist not implemented”. Anyone else?

  • HQZ

    I love where they are going with it, especially when searching through your album/songs in landscape (put it at a 45 degree angle and see what you get ; P ).

  • works great on my dx

  • Great App. Its beautiful and effective. CM 6.1.2 D1. I didn't lose my stock music app but i backed it up and uninstalled it to keep the new one as my main. Going to play with it for a while. Lockscreen controls work fine too.

    • garbagedick

      can you post a vid showing the lockscreen controls?

  • viewthis66

    nice. a smidge glitchy, but nice. love the genre tab. better than the froyo stock player. i wish the widget would have been updated. weird that it wasn't. should have been a clear one or something you can customize.

  • Ryan C

    how can you uninstall it? can you just uninstall upgrades like with the Facebook app?

    • Mr. Steve

      If you install this it intalls a separate new music app that's different from the stock music app. So to uninstall it you just uninstall this new music app like you would any other app. This is how it is on my stock Droid 2, it might be different on an HTC Sense phone or a stock android phone.

      • Ryan C

        well i have a stock OG Droid but when i go to install it, it doesnt say install, it only says upgrade or uninstall. so when i click upgrade it says “This is a system app and will replace the current one installed” So this leads me to believe that it will replace the 2.2.1 music app with this new one and you cant really uninstall it or uninstall the upgrade.? maybe im wrong. im just wondering because i keep getting the “Low on space” notification, so if i dont want it (cause i just wanna check it out) i'll have to uninstall a different app to make room
