If you use Google Chrome and Google Music Beta, the “Better Music Beta” browser extension is a must-have.
The extension will also make listening to music on Chromebooks, which don’t have a real music app, a whole lot easier.
The “Better Music Beta” extension adds a button to your extensions bar that, when clicked, pops up a convenient tool for playing, pausing, and skipping back and forth between songs.
Google is starting to send out Google Music Beta invites a bit more generously these day (even if they’ve completely halted Google+ invites) so if you haven’t tried yet, now’s a great time to request an invite.
Also, the extension adds Gmail-like desktop notifications for when new songs come on. If you’re a Last.fm user, the extension supports scrobbling your tracks.
