Google Play Music Desktop Player overview

Google Play Music Desktop Player adds a level of customization that simply isn't there in the web player. You can change your theme, customize the colors, send your play history straight to last.fm, and it even has a built-in equalizer. From advanced audio controls to simple song change notifications, this desktop player literally does it all. Being a lightweight, standalone framework it will use FAR less resources than having Google Play Music open in a standard chrome tab. This frees up your computers resources to do things you care about, instead of wasting them on playing music.

The app is also open source on GitHub which means you, the community, gets a say in all the features we implement and you can even get involved and help out. If you find a bug or want something new, tell us in Gitter or on GitHub and we will see what we can do.

Version: 4.7.1
Tried to download this several times on my MacBook. Kept getting the same message - "downloading music library" immediately after trying to download. Nothing happened. Gave up. Went and had a beer.

The only problem is that sometimes it stops responding to f7-f8-f9 hotkeys (play/pause, rewind etc.). Other than that no problems.
