Google announces updated Google Play Music app; new UI
On The Official Android Blog, Google has announced that the Google Play Music app is now integrated with Songza, acquired by Google a few months ago.
This post announces that “If you’re a Google Play Music subscriber, next time you open the app you’ll be prompted to play music for a time of day, mood or activity. Choose an activity to get options for several music stations to make whatever you’re doing even better.”
This new version of the app has a new User Interface, as well. In the late Spring, Google announced it was starting to build all of its products with a consistent look and feel, a design philosophy they call Material Design. This new version of the Play Music app, adheres to this new design philosophy.
Marketers, particularly those interested in creating Android apps, will be interested to know that Google has shared this Material Design philosophy in articles on it site, such as at http://google.com/design.
It went even farther. “Last year at I/O [it] announced Polymer, an ambitious UI toolkit for the web. As a developer, you’ll now have access to all the capabilities of material design via Polymer, bringing tangibility, bold graphics, and smooth animations to your applications on the web.”
Using this kit, app developers can create Android apps that have the stylish look of Google’s own latest apps.
