If you’re a Chromebook or Android user or just a fan of Google products you probably use Google Play Music. The service allows users to store up to 20,000 songs in the cloud for free and has a subscription service which allows users to stream and download all the music they want for only $9.99 a month. Being able to utilize that free cloud storage however can be a hassle, especially if you own a Chrome OS device.
With the introduction of the official Google Play Music extension for Chrome users can now use the service in a seperate window and they can now upload files through the browser itself. Setting it up isn’t too hard either.
How To Set It Up
1. Visit Google Play Music in the Chrome browser.
2. Visit the labs menu
3. Enable “Google Play Music For Chrome”
4. Once the setting is enabled and the page refreshes (automatic), hit the launch button in the bottom right corner.
5. This opens a window to add the Google Play Music extension. Allow the extension to be added and the page will refresh once again.
6. You’re done! Now you can use the Mini Player by hitting the launch button in the bottom right corner and upload songs directly from the settings menu.
