All Access in Google Play

One of the many cool things to come from Google's Material Design update to the Play Store app, which now features big beautiful images and colorful icons when you select just about anything, is a huge deal for All Access subscribers. After this update hits your phone or tablet, you'll be able to check and see if an album is a part of your All Access subscription thanks to this single line toward the bottom of the page.

This is a huge step towards fixing the somewhat clumsy relationship Google has created between All Access and regular Album shopping on the Play Store. Previously, the lack of clarity could lead to accidental or unnecessary album purchases because there wasn't just an "add to Play Music" when you were subscribed to All Access. While that button still doesn't exist, because buying albums is still a cool thing to do sometimes, this new notification lets you know that all you need to do is search for the artist in the Play Music app in order to add their work to your existing playlists.

We're sure to be finding many more of these subtle little gems in the update Play Store, so be sure to sound off in the comments if you see something even cooler than this.
