With a view to help you find right music, Google has revamped its music streaming service. Google has announced an improved version of the Play Music, which, as the company explains, “is smarter, easier to use, and much more assistive.”

“Google Play Music now uses machine learning to figure out what music you like and then mixes in signals like location, activity, and the weather along with hand-picked playlists to personalise music for wherever you are and whenever you want tunes,” said Google in a blog post.

The revamped Google Play Music will be rolled out for Android, iOS and the web starting this week. The new service will be released in 62 countries.

The new service is claimed to deliver personalised music based on where you are and why you are listening - relaxing at home, powering through at work, commuting, flying, exploring new cities, heading out on the town, and everything in between.

As explained by Google, your workout music is front and centre as you walk into the gym and a sunset soundtrack appears just as the sky goes pink.

The new Google Play Music also comes with a new home screen, which shows your favourite music at the top of the screen.
