    Unhappy Re: Gapless playback of music from Google Play

    Hi,

    Have been following this thread since I recently got myself a Moto G. Tried Google Play Music and I can't have gapless play, equializer on or off, doesn't matter.

    I upgraded to Kit Kat and have Play Music v5.61617P

    Poweramp does it ok. Interestingly enough, the web version of the player doesn't do gapless playback either...

    Yeah it's dependent on phone version and Google play music. Works with nexus. Annoying to say the least.

    Non-rooted HTC m8 here and no go on the gapless playback in Google music. Horrible as I'm a huge live music listener, and on a phone that that's supposed to cater to audiophiles.... 😠

    I'm not rooting just to get gapless....Google and/or HTC need to get this fixed.

    Can confirm, my brand new Sony Xperia Z3 Compact has no gapless playback at all with Google Play.

    This is enough of an issue for me to return the phone, unfortunately. I've never had any issues before with my Nexus 4 and my Moto E. A real shame.

    This really bothers me. I'd like to consider non Nexus phones for my next purchase in the fall of 2015, but gapless playback in Google play music is a must for me. Google needs to fix this crap.

    I don't know if you absolutely have to use Play Music, but I tried Shuttle and isn't disappointed. Gapless playback works flawlessly out of the box like it does on iOS iTunes (used to have iPhone 5).

    * I listen to a remixed songs, so gapless playback is a must.

    I have my music on Google play music cloud so I need to use the app.

    Maybe I don't know enough about Shuttle but from what I saw, you really can't look at it as a Google play replacement it since Play is all about streaming your music library from the cloud and the music service subscription, where shuttle is just a music player for music physically on your device.

    I have Power Amp as my stock music player replacement and it has phenomenal gapless playback as well as different cool fade options when selecting tracks. But it has the same limitations as Shuttle...no cloud access or music subscription.

    It's fairly sad that I originally started this thread almost 2 years ago, sent numerous reports to Google, and we're still talking about this issue.

    Android version: L preview build
    Gapless playback status : WORKS

    Yes, I don't know if it's due to the new version of Google Play Music alone, or the combination of Music running on Android L preview, but gapless playback once again works without having to use the Equalizer.
    Re-reading this thread, I FORGOT about this. Gapless on the Nexus was working in the Android L preview build. I *wonder* if this is finally fixed in Android L. I've since gone back to KitKat but i'm anxious to try this one out again in a few weeks (or whenever L is ready)

    Tested latest version v5.7.1717Q (new material design version) on KitKat. ALMOST works..some albums seemed fine gaplessly, but then one skipped between tracks. Have to re-test again once I get Lollipop pushed to my phone.
