Google Play Music Adds Functionality That Lets You Watch YouTube Videos

November 20, 2014 - Written By Jamil Bryant

The Google Play Music app just got a little better with a new update that Google has implemented within the app. For the past few weeks, Google Play Music All Access users have been saying that a new feature has been popping up in that links them to relevant music videos in the app. While enjoying your favorite music, or just browsing your catalog of songs, the app would display a YouTube icon. While under this test phase the icon would show up either in the center of the screen or in the “now paying bar.” Now it seems that testing is over for this new feature and Google is rolling it out to its users.

According to Google, “Enjoy YouTube videos in Google Play Music! When browsing or playing music, we’ll show you if there is a music video related to your music. [All Access Only] and search correction suggestions.” This new feature that Google has added to Play Music is awesome for the fact that not only can you listen to your favorite music, but now the app will show you the music video as well. What makes things even more great is that you don’t have to leave the app, everything is done right there inside of the Play Music app. It doesn’t get any more simple than that. As noted on Google+, Google Play stated that the new feature will be available in Finland, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.

If you are eager to try out this new functionality that has been added to Play Music, we have an APK for you to download instead of waiting for Google to push out an update that can take days at a time to get to your device. The APK has been provided by Android Police and according to them, the cryptographic signature promises that the file is safe to install and has not been tampered with at all.
