Meet the Google Music Desktop Player for Windows, an unofficial Google Music application for Windows by DeviantArt user ~vhanla that lets you access and control your music stored in Google’s cloud music service, with a multimedia keyboard, taskbar buttons, or through a sidebar widget on the desktop. The app was last updated quite a while back in October 2011, but it does what is expected of it pretty well.
Here’s a list of features of the Google Music Desktop Player:
- A notification splashform
- LastFM Scrobbling
- Frees RAM after song end
- Uses Webkit Engine
- Supports Multimedia Keys [Play/Pause, Stop, Previous and Next]
- Windows 7 Taskbar support [Buttons for: Play/Pause Previous and Next]
- Metro UI Like with Aero Snap support
- Support for downloading songs as .mp3 files
- Multi-monitor support
If accessing and using Google Music is a part of your daily life, this application is worth a download as it will provide an alternative to having to open a web browser to take care of your music collection on Google Music.
