  • (2014-12-06) Anders Fischer: Easy to use and very useful
  • (2014-05-21) Oscar Villarreal: worked great. a little hard to find where to change the commands. but once i found them is set them up as a macro to connect to my keyboards music keys. only thing i have to do is press the music next/ prev or pause key on keyboard and it controls it even if im on another program
  • (2014-05-08) Richard Janda: Jsem velice spokojen. Našel jsem, co jsem nutně potřeboval. Než stačím kliknout na chrome a vybrat kartu s hudbou a dávat stop, tak je jednodušší klávesová zkratka. Nefunguje zkratka další a předchozí skladba.
  • (2014-04-03) Joe Breslin: Could be great, but only Pause/Play worked, even after changing shortcuts in chrome://extensions/
  • (2014-03-30) Steve Gilberd: Can't bind media keys.
  • (2014-01-30) Roul Duke: I don't see the promised 'Configure commands' dialog on the chrome://extensions/ page, but I've found the shortcuts here... Dang... only pause works! I wonder if the other two are being consumed by my wm?
  • (2014-01-08) Majk Cajk: not bad! play and pause works perfectly but next and previous song doesnt work :/
  • (2013-12-21) Nice idea. Exactly what I need, but unfortunately previous/next song shortcuts don't work. :-(
  • (2013-12-17) Justin Justin: Play and pause seems to work, but not next song, previous song...
  • (2013-12-05) psychomaniac189: crap
  • (2013-12-03) William Robertson: Its not impossible to change shortcuts. Its just really hard to find. You have to go to chrome://extensions/ scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and look for the text link "Keyboard shortcuts". This will open up a popup. Then just go to "Keyboard shortcuts for Google Play Music" and you will find the 3 shortcuts for play, next and previous.
  • (2013-11-27) David Outrata: Imposible to change shortcuts...
  • (2013-08-20) Bob Murrell: From the details: "Keybinds can be configured from the "Configure commands" dialog on the chrome://extensions/ page" This is false - there's no way to configure. Would give a higher rating if this was true. For now, it does what I want, but wish I could actually bind events to a configured key.
  • (2013-07-02) Dominik Bartsch: Does what it should. Thanks to the other Review I know the Shortcuts :)
  • (2013-05-16) Precisely what I needed. It was a little tricky to figure out the shortcut commands.. I had to look in the Github repo for that. For reference: Alt+Shift+P = Pause/play Alt+Shift+J = Next track Alt+Shift+K = Prev track You must have a Chrome window in active in order for these to work.
