Works better than webapp
This app revived my interest in my Gen1 Atom 8.1 tablet. The app works perfectly and smoothly. Two minor features that are missing are spacebar play/pause (dev is working on it---not easy). Second feature is missing auto thumbs-up playlist, but the workaround is to make another playlist with the thumbs up. You can still give thumbs up and down. Support the dev and buy this app; you'll love it!More
It's just as good as the android version, IF NOT BETTER! But it is the best play music app I've ever seen! There are a few others on this store I like but this one is my favorite! Thanks Developer!More
Only issue, when I preview the album cover while the song is playing is there anyway to make the album cover full screen instead of a little picture?More
love this app but I wish there was a way for it to work with my keyboard media controls to advance or pause tracksMore
I really don't have anything to complain about with this player. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to move/drag songs around in playlists and the ability to edit song metadata, though they don't detract from the experience enough to not warrant five stars.More
Essential for Google Music Users
Occasionally bugs will pop up keeping me from listening offline, but they are quickly fixed.More
This is the app you are looking for
This app does everything I want it to and it does it right. Everything works. Other apps I have tried (gmusic and client for google music) don't work smoothly and don't handle playlists at all. Outcoldplayer does both. Last.fm integration is a major plus and is integrated appropriately. Caching music offline works well and is a great feature. The interface is well designed and despite minimal appearance includes all relevant information at a glance. A nice detail is that it shows the buffering percentage when you play a song. No other google play client I have seen shows this. Overall I am very pleased with this app. It is everything I have been looking for out of a windows store app. Finding good apps in the windows store is seemingly impossible but outcoldplayer is one of the best.More
Outstanding Google Music player
This is by far my most-used Windows 8 app on my Surface Pro 3. It's much better than Google's native Music app, and it gets even better when combined with the Google Music unlimited subscription. Very useful, very user-friendly and well-designed. Highly recommended.More
It's a good start.
Needs a LOT of UI/UX work. They need to fix the constant error popup regarding music you own that stops playing the music. Not a fan of being charged just to remove ads on a FREE service...or in the case of All Access a service we already pay for. Not worth the price charged if there aren't any added features. Needs better control layout when in thin/phone width. To skip or get to other controls you have to tap tap tap. Making the bottom section better optimized shouldn't be too much to ask so that I can skip tracks, etc...do more than pause/play.More
Better than the web player!
I've always thought the web player for Google Music is sluggish to load and use. This app is responsive, full-featured, and functional. Has great support for pin view and is quick to buffer and switch between screens. Exactly what I was hoping for!More
