Play Midnight for Google Play Music™ (delisted)

CRX id


Description from extension meta

A theme created for Google Play Music™ to give your eyes a break with a darker layout and color options.

Image from store Play Midnight for Google Play Music™
Description from store Play Midnight is a different take on the standard theme that is used on Google Play Music. As much as I love the original look of Play, the brightness can hurt the eyes after a while. After noticing there wasn't a dark alternative Play Midnight came to be. Firefox addon is in the works current as of v3.0.0. Should hopefully have more news soon. OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://playmidnight.com/ I love how minimal Play Midnight is, and I'd love to keep improving it and making it better. I can promise there will never be ads anywhere on this extension, and I'll continue to improve it as much as possible. Since I'm working on this extension alone, I can't always devote all of my time to the development. Any donations are greatly appreciated and will help motivate me to put more time into making this the best extension possible. Paypal Donation Link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=KHH9ZJH42FF4J To change the color options for Play Midnight, click the Play Midnight cog located on the bottom right corner of your screen, next to the volume/queue buttons. Note about the Mini Player: The mini player uses a separate app/program on your computer separate from Chrome, so I don't have any way of styling it at the moment, sadly. If I eventually have the time to figure it out I'll get on it. Feel free to tell me any things you like or dislike as well as graphical changes and I'll take everything into consideration. Thanks for trying out Play Midnight, and I hope you enjoy!

  • (2020-11-11) Gareth Veitch: LOVE this extension and will miss it dearly now that google play music is shutting down. Please port it over to youtube music if you have the chance! It's already a dark theme but the color matching is such a nice flourish!
  • (2020-10-24) Sea Star: Well this is tragic
  • (2020-10-22) Michael Johnson: Just wanted to drop a five-star review before Play Music goes the way of the dodo. This extension has been hard at work making my music library look all pretty for years. Your work is appreciated.

  • (2020-07-22) Dan Brandenburg: You should be on the Google team! I love this extension and have been using it for years. I'm crushed that Google Play Music will be ending this year and we're being forced to use YouTube Music (which is awful in every possible way). They totally need you to help with the interface :) Thanks for years of improving my GPM experience!
  • (2020-07-07) ϗϏλ: Not working for me. Doesn't even open, takes me to web store when I press it.

  • (2020-03-26) The Minesweeper: This has to be my favourite extension on the store, clean, add free, sleek, and easy to tweak. I only whish there was something of the same style for the mobile app (Which needs a dark theme in a bad way) Overall 10/10 you won't regret this extension.
  • (2020-03-24) Sarah: Ah! Yes! This is definitely a must-have extension. It makes Gplay so much better! Thanks for creating this!
  • (2020-03-19) Kevin Pillay: I am white.
  • (2020-03-16) Ethan Clansky: awesome work mr dev. MUST HAVE for Gplay music. love that the dev focuses on minimization, not hogging resources. The default 'blinding mode' of gplay music, insert many curses, is so blinding bright it probably erases 100 yrs of melatonin. GET IT. NOW.
  • (2020-03-05) Bassel Kateeb: Awesome extension! I can't believe I just discovered it and had been living with that awful white theme.
  • (2020-01-24) Andrew Bartz: Works perfect!

  • (2019-11-29) J S: Perfect. Just perfect. Kudos to the dev.
  • (2019-11-21) Kenyun Peterson: This is an awesome extension! I used to use Spotify and Tidal for my streaming services in the past, so I've always longed for Google Play Music (which I consider superior overall) to have a dark theme like those other services do. This extension lets me do it on my desktop browser at least. I wish there were something like this for the mobile app, but this extension is great. Features are very specific, wish is good for me because I like to customize. ⚡
  • (2019-11-10) Martin K: Great extension! Thanks devs :) Why Google couldn't just do dark is beyond me, they did it to youtube. Anyway, nice one :)
  • (2019-11-07) Badou Jagne: Thank You Chris!
  • (2019-10-22) SceneX MDL Research Group: this is what google play music shoould have looked like from the get go; Simply wow 10 million stars to the person who created this and with all the manpower googles has....... minus 10 million stars lol joking :D

  • (2019-10-07) Adam Olweean: Fantastic Extension! if you use Google Play Music then then this a must download extension! This one of my favorite extensions that I have downloaded. Keep up the great work Chris!
  • (2019-09-26) Austen Palmer: This extension is so well made, I had to come to the reviews to make sure no one suspected this of being a data collecting extension. This is amazing. Good job man
  • (2019-09-25) Zach Iliff: great extension, I like it.
  • (2019-09-02) Sanny Sanoff: Dear Chris, Your extension would be 10 times more awesome, if you could only add some contrast to it. Just look, when I hovering my mouse over the left navigation, I have gray on gray selection. Currently played song is not selected at all. It's hard to find it in the list of songs. Am I close to the end of the album or not? Looking for animated bars icon requires me to enable temporal analysis in my brain cortex and lose time, but having separate color for active element (ancient design language long forgotten at google) would allow immediate recognition of active item in the list, to differentiate it (guess!) from non-active element. Thanks in advance!
  • (2019-08-29) Manuel Hesselbarth: Das ist wirklich eine super Erweiterung, die aktuell alles bietet, was mich bisher gestört hat!
  • (2019-08-28) Vlad Magda: Superb extension, clean, easy to use, and the additional options it offers are dope. Fantastic work.
  • (2019-08-16) PJ Steyn: Amazing!

  • (2019-10-14, v:3.2.1) Seth Christofer: Volume bar color
    The grey color for the background bar on the volume is too close to the color of the main background that it makes it hard to see, I'd recommend lightening it up a bit. Other than that, love the dark theme!! Can finally listen to music while gaming without a giant white screen saying a silent F*** you to my eyes.
    I went to play it but no it doesn't work for chrome gee thanks Chris!

    The extension does not get triggered when I load the Google Play Music Home page. It worked a single time after I installed the extension and relaunched my browser, but now I cannot get it to work! I uninstalled and reinstalled hoping to fix the issue, but is there some other setting I need to adjust? I LOVED the extension from what I briefly saw, I'd like to get it working!

  • (2019-01-25, v:3.2.1) Christopher Keyashian: white background
    Hi I really love this extension it really has improved google pay music for me. Recently though, I've noticed that the backgrounds for albums, artists and playlists, are appearing all white. The standard home screen is fine though. Sections of the screen still retain the black coloring like the sections on the right or left and track lists. As a consequence the text in the white areas is nearly impossible to read as the text color is nearly the same as the white background. Is there a setting I've missed that's causing this? I can send you a screen cap if that will help.

    Can you fix it please an thank you
  • (2019-01-15, v:3.2.1) Akshay Konanki: Lag
