Google Play Music's New Release Radio Now Open to All

Google Home adds support for streaming uploaded/purchased songs from Play Music Google Home now supports purchased and uploaded songs on Google Play Music

Google Play Music subscribers who rock either the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus might have noticed that they were able to access New Release Radio, an in-app feature exclusive to Samsung's pair of flagships.

Google Play Music is one of the more versatile services, even on the add supported free tier, which allows you to upload up to 50,000 of your own MP3 files which you can then stream through the service.

This new feature has several oddities, including the order at which music is played.

As great as it is to have this new functionality make its way to Google Home, you don't have quite as much control over uploaded and purchased songs as you do with streaming content. It means that Google Assistant on Google Home would first look for your requested track, album, or artist in the uploaded or purchased media instead of playing it on the radio. But while you could indeed stream from Google Play Music to your smart speaker, you were only limited to what's on their online catalog.

Essentially, this new radio station within the service uses machine learning to serve users new music they might be interested in, as a way to promote discovery. In a blog post today Google announced the details of this new feature extending to everyone, mentioning that the rollout of the feature is beginning this week, albeit without stating any exact time frame for the length of the rollout, meaning that it's unclear how long it will take before the feature is visible to all users. For example, if you ask it to play a happy song (or any genre or mood), it would still fetch the song from the on-demand playlist or play a free radio mix.
