Labs features on way to Google Play Music

Google Play Music has come a long way since it originally hit the market as Google Music beta and if the Google Operating System website is anything to go by, it could be about to get even better. The sneaky snoops managed to unearth the Google Play Music source code and the bounty within gives a few clues towards some forthcoming features. The most interesting discovery was a ‘Music Labs’ page and if you know your Google, you’ll know that Labs is used as a testing ground for experimental features and works in progress that may or may not make the final product.

Some of the new features we can expect to see include a browser based music uploader which would likely replace the desktop application. There’s also a new history section which is likely to show you play counts and other trends. It also looks like there will be different visuals available, perhaps allowing you to skin the music player to your taste.

There’s no timeline on when we could expect to see these new features and in typical Labs fashion we may not even see some of them at all, but we can be certain to see the evolution of Google Music as the year rolls on.

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.

    Sounds great.   So, are they finally going to fix the laughable album art matching?   I still have Frank Sinatra’s album art figuring prominently on my Google Music Grateful Dead music. If not, then I’m sticking with Amazon.
