If you head over to the web version of Google Play Music, you’ll notice that it has received a major interface refresh to be more in line with Google’s Material Design efforts. The interface is very similar to the Play Music Android app, just with some optimization for the desktop.

Much like in the Play Music Android app, navigation is mostly done via a slide out navigation menu along the side of the interface. The menu is collapsed by default, but if you click to open it, you’ll be presented with options to view your library, listen to radio, and explore other content. The interface for viewing artists and album content is exactly the same as in the Android app, but scaled up. Everything is card-based, which if you’ve used any Google services at all, is to be expected at this point.

The design is responsive, which means it adapts to the size of your browser window. Along the top is a static search bar that allows you to quickly navigate toward of content, while the playback controls remain at the bottom.

The interface appears to be live on the web version of Play Music now for almost everyone. If you don’t have the Material Design look yet, keep checking because it may take a few hours to rollout to everyone.
