Google Home gets support for Saavn and Gàana music streaming services in India

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Google has just launched English support in India, but that's not all. It's also rolling out support for a few region-specific music services. Users of Saavn and Gàana can plug their accounts into Home and make them a default music streaming service. It only takes a few taps.

Saavn and Gàana are both popular services in India, but they're available to users worldwide. They both seem to focus on regional Indian music, but there's international content as well.

Google Home can now pair with Bluetooth speakers

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

The Google Home family of devices have built-in speakers of varying quality, but you might have some nicer Bluetooth speakers around the house. Now, you can have Google Home stream audio directly to these devices. After pairing your Home with the speaker, you can control playback and even adjust the volume.

To pair a speaker, open your Home app and head into the device settings. Connecting to a Bluetooth speaker is part of the "preferred speaker" setup (previously spotted on Reddit).

Head of YouTube Music says a subscription service is coming (because Google doesn’t have enough of those)

Friday, March 16th, 2018

For many people, YouTube is their primary source for music. The release of YouTube Red a few years back made the listening experience better by ditching the ads. It also includes some non-music video content. Then there's Play Music, which includes Red. Now, Google's Lyor Cohen says in a talk at SXSW that his team is preparing a YouTube Music streaming service. Okay...

Google seemed to confirm last year that Play Music and YouTube Red would merge, but there hasn't been a peep on that front recently.

Spotify Line-In lets listeners contribute to music data via desktop client

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Spotify's data is pretty accurate for the most part, and I've personally never seen any errors. But if you have and you struggled to find a way to report it, you might find Line-In to be pretty useful. It's only an experiment for now, and you'll have to use the desktop client to be able to use it, but it could prove helpful to the company and the listeners alike down the line.

YouTube Music v2.21 prepares to add streaming audio quality settings for Wi-Fi and Cellular, possibly first step toward absorbing Play Music [APK Teardown]

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

It's no mystery that YouTube will be absorbing Google Play Music – that much we've known since July – but seven months later and we still don't really know any details outside of some rumors about a rebranding to YouTube Remix. The latest update to the YouTube Music app might shed a little bit of light on what we can expect regarding the apps we'll actually be using.

Google Play Music v8.7 adds option to disable album art on the lock screen [APK Download]

Monday, February 26th, 2018

If there was any one common statement to be made about the subjects of music and smartphones, it's that they're both very personal to each of us. In the same way that some people prefer listening to metal, there are also those that insist on a very sparse homescreen. We might listen to EDM just like we might set up our wallpaper to cycle every hour. If you've taken the time to tailor your phone experience, you might not be happy about a common feature of music players that allows them to temporarily replace your lock screen background with album art.

Google Home can now set alarms with music instead of that obnoxious beeping

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

The default alarm tone for the Google Home may leave a tiny bit to be desired, but thankfully Google has just introduced an alternative: you can now set your next alarm to play music instead. So the next time you need to set an alarm for an impromptu nap or that bird in the oven, you can be jerked back to awareness with something a bit more entertaining.

The new feature was documented by Google on a support page for the Google Home, and it works easily.

YouTube is rolling out unified official artist channels

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Many people consider YouTube their go-to source for music, but a lot of artists have a mishmash of official channels. YouTube is aware of the confusion this causes, and it's looking to streamline music on its platform. Starting soon, you'll see a new "Official Artist Channel" label on YouTube, and your subscriptions might change a bit.

Artists who have worked with YouTube will have their various channels (eg. personal and VEVO) unified under a single channel with the "Official Artist" icon.
