Music & Audio Controls

If you elect to use the stock music player app for the Google Nexus 10, you won't be disappointed. The control scheme doesn't throw anything at you that is very confusing, and the whole interface is very beautiful with transparencies and more intuitive layouts. When it comes down to controlling a song, you'll have the same standard track forward/backward icons, as well as a play/pause icon and a scrub bar.

For advanced playback, there's a menu in the top right of your screen that will allow you to equalize your playback (to a degree), make playlists, and manage your music streaming. You should be aware that Google allows you to use 20GB of storage on their cloud servers for this app, so you can stream your library wherever you have a connection. Should you not like the Google Play Music app, there are other music players on the Play Store.

Music & Audio Management

Aside from having its own folder on your tablet, music files can be managed by the Play Music app in one of several ways. For example, you can have your music displayed in a cover flow that you can thumb through much like you would a stack of records, or you can have the ever-boring list format. It's up to you, but be sure to try each option.
