YouTube partners with Ticketmaster to show artist gig listings with music videos

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

Music has always been integral to the success of YouTube, and the platform is well aware of the importance of its relationship with the entertainment industry. As good as watching a music video or live performance can be, it's no substitute for actually seeing your favorite artists live. YouTube wants to connect the two experiences and has partnered with gig ticket seller Ticketmaster to do just that.

Ticketing within the YouTube app seems like a no-brainer, and from today it will be possible to see the US tour schedules for hundreds of artists when viewing one of their official videos.

Use this IFTTT applet to log your Pixel 2 Now Playing history to a Google Spreadsheet

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

The Pixel 2 and 2 XL have a nifty always listening music ID feature. You can simply look at your phone and see a "Now Playing" notification that tells you if the phone has heard a popular song. Google doesn't keep a log of the songs you encounter, but you can do that yourself with IFTTT.

IFTTT user hypnopompia created an applet you can add to your IFTTT account right now. It uses the Android notification service to watch for the Now Listening notification, then it logs the content of that notification to a spreadsheet in Google Drive.

Play Music v8.5 drops 2 MB of dead weight by unbundling Wear app and fixes app shortcut adaptive icons [APK Teardown]

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

A new version of Play Music is available this afternoon and it's making a big leap in versions from 8.0 to 8.5. This update doesn't come with the redesign that had seemed likely after last month's visual refresh to Play Music on Android TV. But cosmetic touchups were in the cards as the adaptive icons for app shortcuts were fixed in this release. Additionally, Play Music lost some megabytes after unbundling its Wear app.

Add track ID history to the Pixel 2 ‘Now Playing’ feature with this app

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Just before Google's Pixel 2 launch event, we learned of a great new always-on feature that listens for music and displays the song name and artist on the lock screen without even being asked to do so. Now Playing even works without an internet connection, as it keeps a local file containing identification data for nearly 20,000 songs. It won't be able to name everything you hear out and about, but anything vaguely popular should be picked up.

Android Auto support arrives in Plex [APK Download]

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Plex is a popular option for streaming your media collection across your network (or the internet), including music. Just like with video files, you can store all your music on a centralized server (or a cloud storage service with Plex Cloud), and stream it to any device at any time. If you've switched over to Plex for your music playback needs, like me, you'll be happy to know that the app now supports Android Auto.

Google Home now has a sleep timer to turn your music off

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

With the introduction of the Home Mini and Home Max, there are now three types of Assistant-powered hardware from Google. The Assistant is already very capable, but that isn't stopping the team from continuing to add useful features. At Google's event earlier in the month we learned that Google Home can now easily find your phone, and it also recently added the ability to turn off your Chromecast-connected TV.

Spotify will soon work with all Google Assistant devices

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Spotify has been making some news lately. Following on the heels of Google's hardware event today, the music streaming service has announced all users, Free and Premium, can use their voices to get tunes going on any Assistant-enabled device, meaning that it's not just limited to the Home anymore.

All you need to do is link your Spotify account to Assistant and set it as the default music service. Once you've done that, you just ask Google to play some music, even sending the song to another Chromecast-enabled speaker.

Pixel Ambient Services app pops up in the Play Store, confirms always-on music ID feature

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

You're probably aware that Google is having an event in just a little bit. We've heard plenty of rumors about what will be announced, including one suggesting that Google is planning an always-on music identification feature for the new Pixels. That's looking very much confirmed right now, thanks to a new listing in the Play Store called Pixel Ambient Services.

The app description isn't very helpful, saying only "Pixel Ambient Services provides features based on local context for Pixel devices." Okay, but the screenshots are a bit more useful.
