Google Play Music Update to 5.5.1509O Includes Playlist Editing, Sharing

Google slipped in one last Wednesday update, last night, to Google Music. The update itself is pretty minor, but does include two new playlist options that I can imagine more than a few of you have been asking for. Once updated, you can both edit and share playlists. And that’s it, as far as we know, since Google takes ages before it updates any of its “What’s New” sections on Google Play listings.

The update should be rolling out to most already, but if it is not showing in your list of updates, you can grab the APK below.

Any good playlists you want to share?

    Add a sleep timer already….

    You know what would be nice? If you could shuffle the music around on the playlist you built without having to remove songs in order for you to place them where you want them. What a concept, ha?

  • John T. Wildman

    Why anyone would use Google play music is beyond me. I purchased a total of 2 albums from them and neither show up on my power amp. I can’t even download to my device and their equalizer settings are a joke. Amazon mp3 is a much better service in my opinion and I actually own the music I buy and backed up with cloud service.

    • Brian

      I use Google play music for the music player and all access features. When I need to purchase a song I get it through Amazon, but this is extremely rare, typically I just stream songs through all-access. If I need to purchase a song it’s typically for a presentation or project, so it’s not a song I’d listen to regularly anyhow.

  • Ryan Adams

    Kellex…bout time you had some class on your playlist…every time I see your music I keep thinking WTF??? Love R A though!!!

  • ryan

    What system font is that in your screenshots?

  • google services are going higher. their simple update is getting better n better. IMO playlist swapping is the best update http://goo.gl/zwPZid

  • SewWhat

    Who cares.. Music is a deeply personal experience and if you wanna pass off your playlists to everyone then you need to get your ego in check no body else cares… Please just add the ability to make a true mixed radio station based of what you’ve listened to before with new suggestions mixed in…. After about 10 songs of the same genre any music gets old…. If this doesn’t get resolved soon I may have to go back to my premium pandora. (Speaking in ref to Google NOT DL… love what you guys do)

  • Sporttster

    Still using a older version that has moving album art. Looks absurd with it fixed. App still needs work….

  • Smeckle

    On another note, has anybody else been having an inordinate number of “this stream cannot be played” or whatever errors lately? All the time for me.

    • Jem

      Yes. This is an android 4.4.2 issue. I’m on that and a LG G2. It works completely fine on 4.2.2 – I have attempted both multiple times as I’ve reset my device to stock and back a few times in the past few weeks (due to another unrelated issue, which I’ve learned is my SIM card).

      • Matt

        I’m on a custom ROM with 4.3 and have the same issue as well.

      • Chris

        Yep Definitely having a lot of that lately on my LG G2 since the 4.4.2 update.

    • michael arazan

      And what’s up with YT clips on YT that won’t allow you to stream to your device?

  • Scott

    Does it still run in the background killing your battery when not in use?

  • Kevin Liebler

    By sharing a playlist, where does it go, your Google+ page?

    • James Briano

      Rhetorical question? EVERYTHING goes to Google+ whether you like it or not.

  • Smeckle

    Does this mean I can finally reorder songs within my own playlists without GPM forcing them back a couple minutes later?

    • Kevin Liebler

      God, I hope so. I’ve been reporting this as a bug for 2 years, and no one at the entire company I’ve ever emailed seems to comprehend the simple concept of reordering songs.

      • Smeckle

        It’s the stupidest thing. I have to either do it on a computer for it to stick or just make them in iTunes and import them over to GPM.

  • Taylor Abrahamson

    I can edit playlists already without clicking on the menu button, why would I do that? Just open the playlist and swipe away songs you want to remove. I’m not sure what the new edit playlist feature even does? Unless it lets you select songs and batch delete them. But really that would still probably be slower than just swiping to remove each.

    Edit: Never mind, I didn’t see the screen shot of changing the name, description and privacy. Oops

    • miri

      Editing the title, description and visibility,as indicated by the large image at the end of the article.

  • Pet E. Bone

    How did you make the font look like that?

    • RayLovesick

      Hint: It’s an HTC One (M8)

    • Kevin

      Default font on HTC One M8

      • Marikel

        Default font on the M8 is Roboto, that’s Helvetica. It does come built in, though. There’s a font changer in the display settings.

        • Chris

          Do you happen to know where I can download this exact font for my S4?

  • James

    Tag editing! As someone who’s uploaded his whole library to Google Music, that’s a feature I’m hoping will come to mobile.

    • picaso86

      and pick the album cover from the web….

    • MReprogle

      I can’t believe that this is still not fixed. Music Manager uploaded a few albums that I hadn’t named yet (local artists). I contacted Google, and they just told me to delete it and re-upload the files, with the proper names. Being a little OCD, this feature is a given.

  • jeff manning

    can you tell us where we can find playlists that have been shared publicly?

    • Rob Miller

      This!!^^ It’s terrible, but there are some G+ communities, as well as a sub-reddit for All Access Playlists…Shouldn’t be this hard though coming from the worlds largest search engine.

  • wgh85

    I hate where it defaults within the app, and the fact that you have to go top left screen to change it. Who is designing that crap.

  • Johnny Steele

    I look forward to playing with this…Sadly, nobody I know has Google Play Music

    • Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth

      Same here. I’m the only android geek and those with androids don’t really use them to their full potential

      • That’s what DL is for; we android geeks have to stick together!

        • Johnny Steele

          DL GEEKS. ASSEMBLE!!!

          • El_Big_CHRIS

            droid life army unite!

      • Tyler

        Exactly, I have a friend with an android phone and an ipod touch for music and stuff. Both him and another were thinking about iPhones just for music but i told them you can play all music files on android and that there isn’t a reason to get an iPhone just for music.

        • I have a friend who bought an iPod from eBay that’s loaded with free games on it. Although he’s an Android phone user, he thought that IT IS user friendly because of the pre-installed games. I told him he’s going to see none of those if he got the iPod from an authorized source, and he’s shocked. Apparently, he and everyone he knew who thought the iOS is more user friendly than Android because of JUST THAT.

          • MReprogle

            And you are no longer friends, right?

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Speaking of Subscription Google services. Anyome else get this in the Google Rewards app? Sounds very familiar to the YouTube subscription rumors.

    • WitnessG

      I got this survey yesterday. It sounds like they are going to have a discount price for All Access on GPM.

    • Brent Cooper

      Got that last night too. No idea what it means….

    • EvanTheGamer

      Hope those Subscription-based YouTube rumors turn out be just that, rumors. No one wants to pay to watch YouTube videos, even if all videos would be ad-free.

      • michael arazan

        If a Paid YT happened, another video service would come out, or places like Break.com and others would become more poopular

    • jamaall

      Mine asked me if I’d be more interested if there was a youth (under 25) subscription for only $2.99 a month!!

  • EvanTheGamer

    Wish Google would implement an “Upload Songs” feature via the Google Play Music app. That would be so swell!
