    Ok when I updated the phone it pushed me to this new app. I don't really like it but it works so.. The issue I am having is i like to listen to my music on shuffle play. I can not figure out how to get that to work. Anyone else have the app and now how to get it to work. If not what other music app's are folks using that they like. All the music I listen to is on the phone. I don't like steaming it to listen.

    When I push the "little orange button" which I had to guess to figure out it was the start instant mix button, i get a pop up box that says couldn't prepare instant mix, please try again. This app is really starting to make me mad. All I want to do is listen to the music that is loaded on the phone in shuffle play. Why is it so hard?

    I haven't been able to figure this out either. The previous version of the app had simple "Shuffle all music" button.

    Its go to be the least intuitive and most convoluted music app out there. I used to love the original version.

    AGREED! Google fouled this app up! Slacker pulled the same stunt - their new design is awful.

    I've been using Jet Audio Plus as my default music program for quite a while now and really like it. It has a decent EQ as well as several adjustments for sound quality. The free version is just as good, minus a few of the EQ settings.

    I still use Goofle Play Music when I want to stream, but that is quickly being replaced by Pandora.
