What’s great about Google Play Music?

If you were to have asked me a week ago what “Google” means to me, I would have said that it serves one purpose and one purpose only – to satisfy my insatiable need for information and celebrity gossip day and night.

It reminded me of hi-fi systems of a couple of decades ago, but in a much smaller package. The system will play many audio formats and media.
