Google has revamped its music streaming service with a new contextually aware song recommendation service. The new Google Play Music utilizes "machine learning" to figure out what type of music you like, then mixes that music based on location, activity, and even the weather. The new song recommendation service is available through Google Play Music on the web or through its iOS and Android apps.
