But google never bore their users, the Play Music is now coming with a new radiant look. It is completely redesigned and available in the Play Store now.


The New Look

As you can see the changes are immediately obvious as the nav drawer turns bright white and the background goes from a blue-gray to a deep black, and Play Music’s signature orange color has been relegated to a few accents scattered around the screen.
Not only that, rows that used to be in the nav drawer have been turned into separate screens that can be accessed from My Library to make it more fluid. Once the nav drawer is out of the way, most elements on the screen look about the same, but with a few pallete swaps and sizing tweaks.
