Google Play Music for Chrome delivers browser uploads, finally

by John_A

Google has finally enabled uploading tracks to its Play Music service through a browser, but for now, you’ll need to flip the switch yourself. In the Labs section of the menu, there’s an option for Google Play Music for Chrome. Ticking the appropriate box will allow for both drag-and-drop and manual song additions without the need to use that less than stellar Music Manger. Clicking the “Add Music” button at the top of the UI will also give you the option to choose folders that you’d like synced automatically. There’s also a mini player that can be accessed by clicking the arrow at the bottom right of the web app and the ability to download songs, albums and playlists directly from the web has been tacked on, too. All of the new features are powered by Google’s Chrome Apps and Native Client tech. What’s more, the folks in Mountain View have also added Info Cards to Movies and TV shows for added details on the actors in a particular scene. Of course, the selection you’re watching has to enable the feature for it to be available when you press pause on a mobile device. We’ve included a handy GIF after the break for a quick look at how it works.
