A few weeks ago I went through an experiment to see if Google’s Honeycomb music player really could sync my music with the cloud. It was a valiant effort, I think, but ultimately it failed. In the meantime I did find plenty to like about the Honeycomb music player. Thanks to a development that surfaced this morning, we can now download an updated version of the app. The screenshots make it look a bit different than the original Honeycomb music player, so it’s probably worth the download. The story, in a nutshell: Tech site Tech From 10 noticed that a new version of the Android Market had been loaded on their Galaxy S phone. This was apparently a test sent out by Google, perhaps in error. There were plenty of test apps included in this market, including Music version 3.0. Well, now that’s interesting. Thankfully, those intrepid folks extracted the APK, so that we can all download and enjoy it. This morning has been hectic enough to prevent me from installing, but I’ll present a full report once I do. That picture comes from Droid Life. It appears to be a different library interface, and a welcome one at that. The artists/albums/songs pages appear the same, as does the now playing screen. But, again, there are probably some changes that don’t appear in their set of screen shots — for instance, I noticed different menu options in a different one. This is why I want to take some time to explore it and report back. If you want to give it a whirl yourself, you can download the APK. Remember, you have to delete the current music app on your handset. I recommend doing this through Titanium Backup. Then you can move the Android Music APK to your memory card and install it as you would any other APK file (File Manager is my preferred method). If you do, let me know what you think.
