Music & Audio Controls

For those of you who are familiar with Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), you'll notice that the Play Music app for the Google Nexus 7 is extremely similar to what it looks like on older tablets. The standard controls are all still there: the play/pause icon is still in a relatively central location, the track forward/backward icons are still there, as well as the scrub bar. Advanced controls are also present, allowing users to make playlists, tag their songs, and rate them.

You may ask yourself, how did you get this tablet?

Music & Audio Management

Music can be stored on Google's cloud storage servers by installing the Play Music application on your computer, then uploading your library. If you do this, you will have 20GB of cloud storage that you can access on your tablet from anywhere that has a stable wireless connection. You can browse your library wither via cover flow, or list format on your tablet.
