by: - Last updated on: July 20th, 2017

Technology companies are shifting to web apps. Apart from being accessible to you everywhere, these platforms also allow third-party developers to create supplementary tools for improving their experience. One of the major services which is limited to the browser on a computer is Google Play Music. Hence, naturally there is a slew of Chrome extensions available for it, and in this article, we have compiled the best of them.

Prime Player

If you find Google’s official Play Music extension underpowered, take a look at Prime Player. The app brings a sophisticated controller into a tiny window you can utilize on any tab. The highly customizable extension lets you perform almost every action such as browse the playlist, shuffle, repeat in a jiffy. Apart from remembering your previously played tracks, Prime is even capable of extracting lyrics from them. It’s also entirely free of cost, and you can download it right away from the link mentioned down below.

Relying on your browser for music playback can cause stutters especially if you’re using Chrome. Therefore, we present you “Speedy Google Play Music” extension that essentially sheds off resource-hogging elements of Play Music’s interface and radically speeds up the loading process. As stated by the developer, the extension achieves this by “getting rid of all the CSS transforms and drop-shadows that really slow down the browser when rendered so much.” It’s free and available from the link mentioned down below.

Play Midnight

Play Music’s UI comes with an appealing design itself. However, it can be exceedingly bright if you’re working late. The “Play Midnight” extension, as the name suggests, repaints the app with a dark coat which results in a stunning theme I haven’t disabled ever since I installed it. In addition to that, the tool lets you precisely select which part of the interface should be altered including the favicon. Play Midnight is free, and you can grab it from the link below.

Music Bubbles

Next up is another mini-player – Music Bubbles. As you might have already guessed from the title, it adds a persistent floating menu for Play Music on the Chrome browser. You can, of course, move it around and place it wherever convenient. Furthermore, it automatically dims into the background when not used for a particular period of time, and you can even blacklist websites where it shouldn’t appear. Neat. The player includes all the essential buttons including play, pause, song’s progress, volume, info card and more.

This one’s quite self-explanatory. “Play Music Lyrics Fetcher” does exactly what it says and allows you quickly glance over the playing track’s text. It’s also not constrained to Google Play Music; you can employ it for various other sites such as YouTube, Spotify, and a few others. The extension can be detached from its default position as well and dragged around as a dedicated window.
