Google Music for Android received an update this morning, bumping it to build 5.3.1316. Most notably, the update adds the ability to store cached music on an external SD card for KitKat users . For devices that still have an SD card, which aren’t many at this point, this is a very nice addition. Also coming with this update is the ability to share links to songs with social networks, as well as the ability to shuffle all songs by a specific artist. Design-wise, the update also makes some slight tweaks to the pull-out notification panel.

Full changelog:

  • SD card support for offline music on KitKat (Experimental support on some older devices)
  • Added ability to shuffle all songs from an artist in All Access
  • Made it easy to share links of songs, artists and albums to your favorite social networks

The update is most likely a staged rollout, so it may take awhile for it to officially hit your device. If you don’t feel like waiting, head over to Droid-Life, where they have a direct APK link for sideloading purposes.
