Just added channel and connecting to my music through the box UI so far seems to work well. Unfortunately, accessing the channel via the android app is not so pretty. When I select the nowhere channel I can launch the channel ok but I only get a remote keyboard from within the android roku app. You actually must be in front of your TV monitor at the same time to actually see google music. Is there a way to operate this channel from an android app and also view the music UI from the android app?


Roku offers no way to show their interface on any other device so it is highly unlikely that you will be able to view the Google Music channel's output on any other device.

Just wanted to check in and say the app is running great on my brand-new Roku 3. I figured I'd give the new processor a workout and remove the song limit so it would catalog my full 10000+ song Google Music library, and so far it hasn't broken a sweat. I will make one request though - can the Artists list be just a text list of the artists that links to a menu with albums/songs on the next level down? I will admit that my metadata for my music is not nearly as nice as my metadata for my movies/TV shows (Plex made me OCD about video metadata, but I don't play music through it so that's much sloppier), so I have a ton of junk artists and it takes me forever to scroll through the list as is, even with the much smoother scrolling on the 3.

Beyond that one little hitch, fantastic app!

I had to change my google password a few weeks ago and have been unable to log in to my google music account thru the Nowhere music app using my new new google music password. Why am I locked out? Did google break this app? Its too bad I really enjoyed this app. :cry: :cry:

I have logged in thru chrome and was sucessfull. I reinstalled the app Logged in ...no sucess. tried upper then lower case letters no success. Something is blocking my attempts.
I am getting tired of dealing with this. I only wish I did not spend 2 days uploading my library to google play. I should have just used Amazon's service. These free apps are not consistent If anybody has any ideas I am all ears.

^^^ I hate that idea, I'd rather it just stay as My Music...I really don't want to see it as another Radio & purchase channel.
Honestly, I think if he does do it, Google will force Roku to remove it...than we'll have nothing.

Sort of off-topic, but for $5/mo you can have MOG, which has an official Roku channel. Though their Roku UI could use some work.
Roku Orig. (20F93E011586) → Onkyo TX-NR636 → Vizio SV470XVT (all HDMI)
Roku 2 XS (13A166000184) ───┘ │
Roku LT (16A18K002429) → HDMI Switch ─┘ (this one uses 802.11g)
FiOS Business ↔ Linux Router ↔ Rokus (wired ethernet)
