Google Music Desktop Player 1.8.5

A desktop client for the new service Google Music, enabling you to access the online service much easier, without using a Web browser
Over the years, Google has developed more and more services and products meant to help users enjoy their computers more than before. One of these services is called Google Play Music and it enables you to upload your favorite tracks, purchase new albums and listen to music.

Google Music Desktop Player is an intuitive and reliable third-party software solution that helps you make the most of Google’s service without needing you to login via a browser every time you want to listen to a track.

First and foremost, you will be requested to enter your Google credentials, i.e. your username and password, so as to gain access to the songs you have already uploaded to your account.

After you have logged in, you can explore your current items, start playing some of the tracks or create playlists. You can also copy tunes from one playlist to a new one with a simple mouse click.

Once a song has started playing, your can pause it, jump to the next or previous one, as well as repeat it or shuffle all the tracks in the current list.

Furthermore, due to Google Music Desktop Player, a notification is displayed whenever a new track begins playing, and you can set the message to automatically be hidden after a certain number of seconds.

Another function of Google Music Desktop Player is that of freeing up RAM after each song - this is needed since Google Music relies on Flash to play music and it cannot free unused RAM without a little help.

Additionally, Google Music Desktop Player can also be used for LastFM scrobbling, as long as you first enable this option from the dedicated app window.

All in all, this utility can help users enjoy the functions of Google Music without the assistance of a browser, while also getting the chance to scrobble LastFM.
