Google Play Music for Android has received another update adding the ability to share and delete tracks. This is the second time the app has been updated since it was overhauled at Google I/O earlier this month.
You’ve probably already heard about the awesome things announced at Google I/O yesterday, but if you didn’t get a chance to watch it yourself — or you just tuned out because it went on too long — then you can now watch the whole thing online.
We suggest skipping to the best bits, though, because it’s almost four hours long.
It’s strange to think that, till now, as big a high-end audio player as Shure has had no answer to the extravagant, big-gun, flagship in-ear monitor models of its rivals — models like the Ultimate Ears 18 Pro Custom, or the JH Audio JH16 Pro.
But now they do — big time. The new SE846 extends Shure’s highly regarded SE line well beyond the SE535, previously their top, most expensive IEM.
OK, so maybe not a huge surprise, but Google is said to launch a paid, subscription-based music service, like Rdio or Spotify, as soon as this week at the Google I/O conference, reports the Wall Street Journal.
According to “people familiar with the matter,” says the WSJ, the announcement of the new service could happen as soon as tomorrow, when Google hosts it’s annual I/O developer conference. The WSJ says that Google has previewed new music initiatives at I/O in the past, so it might just announce the streaming service there, as well.
Spotify has acquired Swedish music discovery startup Tunigo in an effort to compete with Twitter’s new music service, AllThingsD reports. Tunigo will continue to operate as normal for the time being, but all of the company’s employees will reportedly move into Spotify’s offices in Stockholm and New York to work on Spotify’s main music streaming service.
Like Amazon’s Kindle Fire devices, Barnes & Noble’s Android-powered Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablets have always relied on the company’s proprietary app store for software distribution.
While this ensures that every app you download will work well on your slate, it also means that the app selection is limited, and nowhere near that of Android’s own Google Play store.
But that all changed today when Barnes & Noble announced it will finally be bringing Google Play to its tablets.
Google has announced that Google Play Music is now available in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, New Zealand, and Portugal.
