Music is an essential part of mobile entertainment and is a widely expected feature from a mobile phone. The Android operating system is blessed with a decent music player but there are many things that it cannot do which music lovers sorely miss.

Google Play Music
Google’s very own Play Music acts as a bare-bones music player to play most popular variety of music files. For those who could not gain access to Google Play’s music library, this would be a good alternative music player for you.
It will classify the songs on the mobile phone by Genre, Artist, Album and Songs. The Play Music could even play FLAC files. This simple and easy to use app allows creating Instant Mixes and Playlist without any hassles. The only thing it does not offer is a volume slider in the app user interface.
