If you're a subscriber to Google Play Music, you will be given the option to "play music for a time of day, mood or activity". And the playlists – or stations – can be downloaded for offline listening.

Meanwhile, the updated Google Play Music comes with a redesigned Listen Now page to make it easier for you to discover new music – including cards for new releases and recommendations.

Activity-based station recommendations are not currently available in the UK, restricted to just US and Canadian subscribers at present. The new-look Listen Now page, however, is available.
