[APK] Google Play Music 6.0 Brings Tweaked Nav Drawer, Free Streaming Radio And More

 
Google recently announced their new free radio service and today they updated their Play Music App for Android. This update jumps from 5.9 to 6.0, and it makes some significant changes, not the least of which is the addition of ad-supported streaming radio.

Here is the changelog which we found out, we will update the changelog more :


  • Support for free streaming radio with ads, ads, ads
  • New radio and activity playlist artwork to match website
  • Playlists and Radio moved to My Library (out of nav drawer)
  • New Releases added to navigation drawer
  • Browse Stations added to navigation drawer (curated stations)
  • New startup splash screen.
  • Thumbs up/down buttons switched places with random/repeat

What's mostly new is the addition of free music streaming, a small banner at the bottom of the screen, pop-overs, and full-screen video ads that appear from time to time. Check the images below for a look at what the free streaming looks like. Playing local music in the app without All Access should still work the same as before without any ads.







The navigation drawer is also different in v6.0. Note, those are the new curated stations that free users have access to, but All Access subscribers get them too. There are no ads if you're signed in with an All Access sub.

You can get the update from APK Mirror instead of waiting for the Play Store to do it or you can update from Play Store from below.
