Google acquired Songza in 2014, and then @eliasroman, its co-founder, became the lead of Google Play Music. He's just announced the latest iteration of the service, which uses machine learning to figure out what music you like and then mixes in signals like location, activity, and the weather along with hand-picked playlists to personalize music for wherever you are and whenever you want tunes. Compelling.

I left Spotify because they limit you to 10,000 songs without telling you. It's one of the worst user experiences I've ever encountered in my life. I spent 5 or 6 hours one evening adding all my albums and songs to my library. I thought it was working but it wasn't doing anything at all because I had hit the 10k limit. It didn't give me any feedback or warning or indication that I was just wasting my time. I really wanted to like Spotify. I have a playlist I use to keep updated with 172 followers. More info on that limit that they don't tell you about here: https://community.spotify.com/t5... Switched to GPM and couldn't be happier. I have 25,000 tracks in my library, I can upload MP3s from anywhere and listen to them on my phone or at work.

@livejamie Had the song limiting happen to a friend as well. All the feedback and constructive criticism I've ever sent Spotify has been ignored. I'll gladly make the switch back to GPM!

My Google Home just arrived in the mail. I wonder if this pairs with the device.
Jamie Martin@livejamie · Senior UX/UI at Raven Software
@rrhoover Yeah you can pair it with GPM, Youtube Red, Spotify or Pandora
Patrick Burtchaell@pburtchaell · Designer
@rrhoover It pairs quite well. You can cast to Home from web or mobile, or just ask Home to play your music.
