    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

    Just reinstall it. Search it in Google.com. "Google Music player.apk" there you can download it
