Google Play Music app now allows you to edit & share playlists; Rdio gets gapless playback

Two Android music apps have received small but useful updates. Google Play Music now allows you to edit the name and description of your playlists, and to share them with others, you can now do this from within the app rather than having to login to the website. You can also pin subscribed playlists and dismiss items from Listen Now, and the Thumbs Up playlist is sorted by recency.

Rdio, meantime, gets gapless playback – a feature many had requested for live concerts, classical music and comedy shows. Some UI improvements have been made along the way.

Both Google Play Music and Rdio are free downloads from Google Play.

Google Listen Stories January 25, 2012

Google released updates today to three of its popular Android apps: Google Maps, Goggles, and Listen.

Google Maps was updated with a small new feature called “night mode” that will help you better navigate through tunnels. There is not much word on how exactly this feature will work, but it sounds cool nonetheless.

Google Goggles was updated to version 1.7.1 with a long list of updates. Goggles will no longer store inaccurate locations for queries in search history and it will not crash when loading large bitmaps. The app also features the usual performance enhancements and will now show the description field for user-submitted results.

Lastly, Listen’s update is small. It fixes an issue where Listen would improperly take audio focus from other apps while in the background. You can download these updates from the Android Market. (via Android Central)
