Google Play Music Gets New Search User Interface on Android
The new Google Play Music search interface launched on the web version a while back. It now appears that the Google Play Music search interface changes are finally coming to Android. The changes are still in beta testing, so it will be a while before it becomes an official server-side update.
The changes include the interface now showing artists, songs, and albums in the search results themselves. This is part of the new change to get you better results and get you more accurate information. You also will be able to use the inline interface now to play songs. For people who use the app often, these changes have been something a lot of users have asked for and have wanted for a while on the Android app.
This new Google Play Music search interface update is a server-side update, which means that it is not specific to a certain Android device or manufacturer. That means everyone will be getting the update once it is finally launched. Some people are getting it now as a beta testing update, which is pretty cool. You will notice that the auto suggestions are not the only thing when you search for the artist, album, or track now.
You will notice that the automatic suggestions are now limited to just three, and they are also lower down on the list. This is definitely a plus because it used to be annoying since the automatic suggestions would take up almost the entire list. Often times, you would accidentally click one of the automatic suggestions trying to get to the bottom of the list where the real result you wanted was.
When you search, the first three results will be for the song you searched, the album or the artist. There will be a play button on the right side of the Google Play Music update, and the left will show you the artwork. Both of these icons are really easy to see and read, which is good if you have a smaller Android device.
