The fellows at Android Police have their hands on a couple new apps from the Ice Cream Sandwich build that's floating around out there (how 'bout a dump for the community, Mr. Anon?), and with it comes with new Google Music and Google+ apps. The new music app has a bit of a UI makeover, with more sleek (and less screen real-estate wasting) controls, most noticeable in the "now playing" screen, and a search button has been included since ICS has no dedicated search key. It appears that everything we know and love about Google Music is there, but in a more refined package.
The Google+ app at first look appears much like the current version in the Android Market, until you look at the
Huddle Messenger portion. Once again, it's been renamed, this time Google is calling it "Chords." While that may be confusing at first, it's probably less confusing than having the same name as other applications (Facebook, iOS, etc.) that are using the word messenger. Or it may be something that Google it kicking around, and not even final. We'll only know for sure when ICS is available for everyone.
