Standalone program allows you to play, pause, advance, previous and open stored songs from your Google Play music library on your desktop without having to ever visit the full site.
I’ve already mentioned how to take advantage of Google Play’s generous, free music hosting service that allows you to store up to 20,000 songs in the cloud for access anywhere, anytime. Now, if that isn’t convenient enough, there’s also a free desktop called called GMusic that allows you to play those songs without ever having to visit the full site.
With GMusic you can play, pause, advance, previous and open stored songs from your Google Play music library right from your desktop, giving you a plausible alternative to standard free music streaming services. Google Play could become your new go-to music jukebox since you’re the DJ with ultimate control.
Once installed, GMusic runs from the system tray where it runs hidden by default. To make it visible right-click the system tray icon, go to settings and select “Show MiniPlayer When Hidden.”
GMusic will then appear on your desktop, which you can drag to locate wherever you want on your desktop (place the cursor under the bottom edge).
The controls are fairly straightforward. The eject bottom on the right opens the full Google Play music site so you can navigate to a particular album, song, artist, or playlist of your choosing.
