    Google Play Music v6.0 - Nice!

    Updated Google Play Music from 5.9 to 6.0 today, the new streaming is really nice for free. I understand there's a 10 buck a month option, but the freebie so far is great. Anyone else get the update? What do you think?? No ads yet to speak of, I'm sure Google will weave that in over time. I think they're obviously trying to give Apple's new service a run for the money - speaking of which, I really liked Taylor Swift's comment to Apple that they don't give away iPhones, so why should artists give away their music to help Apple push their new service for 3 months.

    I played (literally!) a bit more, and the desktop version of Google Play Music streaming is very nice too. Pandora is good, Spotify is good, Icecast is good, but nice to have something new for a change, and still have not heard "Flo from Progressive.com" or any other ads for that matter.

    Play music is my "go to" music player & streaming app. It took awhile but I've uploaded my music collection and pay the monthly fee so I have access to anything I could want in the way of music. Since I still have unlimited data I don't have to worry about that either.

    Hi VG!

    So it sounds like you are used to dining on cavier, while I'm just discovering tacos, but the streaming seems much nicer in v6, and so far no pressure to sign up.

    Since you've got a lot of experience and the primo version of GPM, does v6 bring a better interface to the table, or is it pretty much the same as 5.9??

    I haven't noticed any big UI changes. The most notable change was when they added the YouTube key so if there is a song with a video you can watch it without ads. The "radio stations" and "mood" playlists are pretty cool.
