Google Play Music Radio

New download queue to better control download status also included

A new update is rolling out to the Google Play Music app today that brings new radio station options based on music genres and improvements to the download queue menu. The new radio stations can be selected based on dozens pre-defined genres, and play with just one tap from the Radio menu of the new app.

You still have the previous options of making stations based on artists and songs or choosing from recommended stations based on your listening history, but genres are a much-needed addition that is available on other music services already. This is just one more reason for people to take a look at Google Play Music All Access, although we tend to think there's plenty to love already.

The update to version 5.2.1204L also includes the option to pause, resume or cancel downloads that are ongoing, for those times when you don't need to spend the bandwidth or battery. You can grab a download of the latest version of the app from the Play Store link above.
