Download: Google Music 4.0.1 – Pulled From Ice Cream Sandwich?


A new Google Music apk (4.0.1) has reportedly been pulled from Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus which also means that it was built specifically for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).  The hints of ICS are all over it, but most noticeably from the color scheme which has turned cyan-blue.  It also feels much more polished than previous builds.  

Download:  Music2.apk

*Note 1 – It is recommended that you uninstall your current Google Music before installing this one.

*Note 2 – If you want to sync with your Google Music account, you will have to head into Settings>Applications>Manage Apps> and then “Clear Data” on the app.  Should work after that.

  • Hey everyone,

    Does anyone know if there is a way to uninstall the stock music player from the nexus one without having to root the phone?


  • Tried installing it on my Photon 4G and got an error “Application not installed”.

    anyone know how to uninstall the google music 3.0.1. apk from a Motorola Xoom v3.2.1.  When you drag and try to drop, there is no Uninstall.  The music2.apk won’t install because it has the same name.  any ideas?

    Droid X, can’t find a way to access my cloud music…where is the online access button?

    • Stuarthanderson

      Apparently just clearing data a few times got it to work…weird

      FWIW, this IS a nice upgrade over the previous player

  • Matthew

    it keeps reading ‘application not installed’

  • Samsung devices that don’t show the message to connect to your Google account will need to copy the APK to /system/app in order to bypass that security message. That means you need to have root, by the way.

    Awesome on my D3

  • Getting force closes when trying to play music from the ‘cloud’. When music is playing from local storage, it is fine.

    DX rooted

    I’m running Peter Alfonso’s build of gingerbread on my OG droid and it won’t give me the option to uninstall the existing music app. Any way to manually uninstall?

  • Mike

    Any ideas?

      did u uninstall the old one then reboot?

  • Fix: on previous Google Music Shuffle all would not function properly with offline music only, this version is very smooth with this.

  • Smtxom

    Does your device have to be rooted for this to work?

    Working just fine for me, and is a lot faster than the version before it. Still bother me that there is no sorting of ‘recently added’… How am i supposed to find songs that i just added without having to search for each one individually?

  • Chad O’Hara

    Doesn’t fix duplicate listings of songs which were sideloaded and also uploaded to google music.

  • Thank you for the support steve. I opened the file, added it to my droids file list. I put it in the “download” folder. Now I don’t know how to open it… or make my new music app the ICS version

      I’ll just walk you thru it here. First, go to Settings > Applications > and check the box to allow you to install from unknown sources. Now, go to your phone’s file explorer, and navigate your way to /sdcard/downloads/ . You should see a file in there called Music2.apk . Tap on that and you’ll get a prompt to install it (you may have a choice on how to open the file, choose Package Installer). Click install, and as long as it comes back successful, you should be golden. If your phone doesn’t have a pre loaded filex explorer, hit up the market… ES File and Astro File are two good/free ones.

  • okay, i put the file on my phone, but how do i open it….

  • Anyone try with a Honeycomb tablet yet?

    • Steve Hawk

      Tried on Transformer, no bueno.

        Nothing here either. The file conflicts with the pre-installed music app.

  • will someone tell me how to add this to my phone? step by step?

    • Keith Sumner

      Yes, take your phone back to the store, return it, and ask for an iPhone instead. Seriously if you can’t even figure out how to download a file and open it………

      • Steve Hawk

        Dude, be kind. We were all new at one point.

      • Yeah Keith, I forgot you knew how to do all of this right out of your mom’s snatch.

    • Download the file, email it to your gmail account on your phone, choose install from the email. Make sure under settings>applications you have Unknown Sources box checked.
