  • (2020-11-19) Josh Bergasse: This works when you disable Media Keys in chrome to avoid that terrible little window in the top left corner Windows 10 when you play and pause media.
  • (2020-02-01) François Georgy: Does not work. Restarted, rebooted, checked everything. Just doesn't work for me on Mac.
  • (2020-01-28) Ethan Berg: adds support for keyboard media buttons. exactly what i wanted
  • (2020-01-08) Trev Evans: Does exactly what it says on the tin! :-)
  • (2019-12-31) Jon Brock: Does not work on my Logitech K810
  • (2019-12-08) Ben Forster: It does play pause and skip in either direction but... it also skips two songs instead of one. Due to I've got to remove it and look for alternative solutions.
  • (2019-11-10) Dima Rostopira: You have to enable Chrome in accessibility settings on macOS. Then it just works (using Catalina 10.15.1 and Chrome 78)
  • (2019-11-04) Darek Greenly: This extension is not needed anymore. Media keys started working with the new Chrome update.
  • (2019-10-08) Works great. I have used on Linux and Windows without any issues. I also switched to the Brave browser which is chromium based but it still works perfectly. This should be built into Chrome/Google Music already but you know.. Google is unable to ever update their existing products and only knows how to create new things. Great extension.
  • (2019-09-18) Vitalii Pidtserkovnyi: cool
  • (2019-07-17) Pramoth Murali: The best, wonder why doesn't Google see this integration.
  • (2019-06-03) Alyssa Cantrell: Works as expected on Windows 10 and Chrome 74. Thank you!
  • (2019-04-21) Live Long & Prosper: Outstanding! This works perfectly, whether Google Play Music is in focus or not. It even works on a Google Play Music app link on my Windows 10 taskbar--even when my browser is closed. When I open my MusicBee app to play hi-resolution music, the media keys properly focus on MusicBee. And when I close MusicBee, the media keys properly re-bind to Google Play Music. Genius!
  • (2019-04-02) Paul C: Works perfectly!
  • (2019-03-13) E. K.: Does EXACTLY what it says. Extremely useful, much appreciated. Exactly what I needed. I expect to never remove it.

  • (2018-11-20) Sandra Daniela: Does it work with macOs Mojave Version 10.14.1 (18B75)? It's not working for me, keeps opening itunes. Any advice?
  • (2018-11-19) Ankit Duseja: Great extension, I just wish it could control volume as well. I use it along with chromecast and it works well but volume cannot be controlled, instead it changes default system volume. But otherwise awesome for track change and play/pause.

  • (2020-12-03, v:0.5.4) Josh Bergasse: YT Music support
    Hey there, Could you make one of these for YT Music, now that Google Music has been deprecated? Or publish this bad boy on github and hopefully we could tweak it to work on YTM. Thank you for making this, used it for quite a while! Josh
  • (2020-04-21, v:0.5.4) Christian Giroux: It does not work :/
    Media keys do not work. my windows is up to date as of today, so is Chrome
  • (2020-01-14, v:0.5.4) Ahab Wolf: Possible fix for chrome users
    I was having an issue with the Play/Pause feature not working, only the Next/Prev track buttons worked. I disabled Global Media Controls in chrome via the chrome://flags/ page, and now it works! Just wanted to let other people know in case this works for them.
  • (2019-05-31, v:0.5.4) Jonathan Lafleur: Do you plan on supporting Youtube Music ?
    Do you plan on supporting Youtube Music ?
  • (2019-04-04, v:0.5.4) Ricardo David Ruiz López: Temporarily disable?
    Can I temporarily disable this extension? I cant use media keys with spotify even if the extension is greyed out and no google music tab is open. Thanks.
  • (2019-02-25, v:0.5.4) Mouse Functionality
    The extension works great for my Logitech Keyboard, however my Logitech mouse has some programmable buttons and (after programming one of the buttons to the Play/Pause function), the mouse buttons don't work. It seems that the function command would be the same whether originating in the keyboard or the mouse. Logitech is blaming the extension. Any thoughts?
  • (2018-12-10, v:0.5.4) Max Renaud: Permission question
    Hi, Can you please explain the requirement for browsing history? Interested in adding this plugin and this prevents me from adding it at work. Is it the for "previous song" navigation? Let me know (You might see from this inquiry that I'm a Google employee. This interaction is 100% personal and has nothing to do with my capacity as a Google employee. Please treat this interaction as a normal user<->dev conversation)
  • (2018-11-26, v:0.5.3) Gjoesliyknep: Doesn't work.
    Installed, press keys, no change.
  • (2018-08-14, v:0.5.3) Allan Duong: Doesn't work
    Hi. I just installed this and tried, but it doesn't work. Nothing happens when I press the media keys.
  • (2018-04-21, v:0.5.3) Richard Feldman: Permissions?
    This extension looks fantastic, but I get really nervous about the "Read and change all your data on websites you visit" permission. Any chance you could change the manifest to have it only ask for permissions on "play.gooogle.com/music" instead of all websites (e.g. including my bank)? Would be really great! <3
