A music player is best known by the User Interface it offers and who could be better than Google in this regard. The UI is undoubtedly the best out there. The Google card-aesthetic coupled with fluid swiping and pull-out action bars makes it the best UI combination ever. You can easily choose songs, genres, artists as the app can easily sort them out for you according to the tags. You can also mix local music with cloud stored music.
Play Music is a good music player but it fails to deliver lot of features that one should crave from a feature-rich music player.
