Google Play Music Update 5.2.1233L Now Available, Adds “I’m Feeling Lucky Radio” Feature

Google_Music_Update 5.2.1233L_1

It wasn’t long ago that Google rolled out a version of the Play Music app which allowed genre-based radio on our Android devices and now they’ve just kicked off another phase of the application offering an “I’m feeling lucky radio” feature.  The apk, version 5.3.1233L, will slowly be rolling out to all devices (if not already) and will allow one to have the app suggest and play music based on your previous selections. The auto generated radio station will be a welcomed addition as many who aren’t sure what they’re in the mood for can allow the app to choose for them based on what they like most. As of now, it’s being reported that a “mix of everything” functionality is kind of missing and it tends to only play mostly from the genre you play most but we have high hopes for the app and that the functionality will be quickly integrated. Do you think the app has what it takes to be a Slacker and Pandora killer? With the All Access feature and now the I’m Feeling Lucky Radio functionality, we think it certainly has the potential to claim a stake in the market. Feel feel to drop your opinion in the comments below.

Update: The apk should be available for updating via the Play Store now if you haven’t received it already.

 


About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    Is it only available in the US? Is Canada privy to this exquisite service or not yet?

      I live in Australia and I have all access with all the same features (including im feeling lucky) so I’m sure Canada would too.
