    Default Google music always running task

    For some reason Google music is always a running task. Doesn't matter if I end it or what I do. Anyone else with this

    It does this for me too. I personally disabled it, as I use the built in music player...not a fan of streaming because of the data use.

    I think if you turn off notifications for it it will stop loading.

    How do you disable it? I did not see anything under settings once it's open.

    I followed xgman's suggestion and, so far, so good. To do this mikeccc123, go to: apps/settings/more and click on the "application manager". Once launched, scroll down to Google Play Music and select it. Directly underneath the "force stop" button will be a check-box labeled "show notifications" and, deselect it (i.e. no check mark there).

    I attempted to fully "disable" the app but kept getting a message reading "do you want to replace this app with the factory version" and, not having any idea what that meant, I settled for just turning off notifications.

    I actually did replace with factory version before I read your post. Now I cant find it anywhere, I never used it but wondering where it went?

    Doing this won't allow you to play any purchased music though. Unless you transfer it to your computer first. Kinda dumb
