Great job on this release :) Thanks for providing the early adopters with a Samsung 500 with this update as well, it is beautiful.

I have got google music to work/play next song in list.

Solution was to disable html5 audio in google music labs.

So I had html5 audio enabled and
it worked fine in previous stable version 21.0.1180.92
