New Google Play Music interface

A new Play Music web interface is rolling out that pulls it closer to the Android experience.

If you fire up Google Play Music on the web today you're likely to be greeted by a refreshed interface, pulling it closer in line with what you'd find on an Android phone or tablet. The new look is very familiar to the landscape layout you're already used to seeing on a large tablet today, with a deeper orange color and large cards taking up the entire screen. The left-side panel is now hidden by default, exposed by clicking a hamburger menu button just as you'd see on mobile devices, and there's a more prominent giant search box at the top of the screen.

4

HTC's helpful video creation app just got a ton more useful, especially to Chromecast owners.

Creating Zoe videos is one of those things you either love to do or never really bother with, especially if you used an early version of the software and never looked back, but it really is one of the more clever things HTC has done over the last couple of years. The software makes it incredibly simple to put together compelling stories from your collection of photos and videos, and over the last year HTC has worked hard to grow the app into a social platform where users can share and enjoy the creations of others.
