This update is all about making things easy. Now you can tap the new search feature found by tapping the search icon in the top right of the app but you will need a Google Music Subscription for that snazzy feature.
For those who are in a giving mood it's now even easier to gift the sound of music. Go to the menu where you can switch accounts and what have you and you'll notice 'Send Gift' is now there. Oddly they have also left it where we've become used to seeing it.
