Google Play Music has snagged a pretty cool update that overhauls the way the app works with Chromecast. In this latest version, you'll now get gapless playback when casting music via Google Cast and your music will keep on pumping even if your phone gets disconnected. Here's the full breakdown:

  • No more stoppage of playback in between songs
  • Gapless playback support now enabled over Cast
  • Music will continue playing even if your phone turns off or if you need to leave your amazing house party

While certainly not a giant overhaul of the app by any means, these are some much-needed additions that should do away with some of the more annoying aspects of casting your tunes. If you're interested in testing this update out, you can grab it from Google Play now.
