Latest PyPI version Number of PyPI downloads Travis CI build status Test coverage

Mopidy extension for playing music from Google Play Music.


  • You must have a Google account and some music and playlists in your library.

  • You must have an Android device registered for Google Play Music.

  • The Unofficial Google Music API is needed to access Google Play Music. Install it by running:

    pip install gmusicapi


Install the Mopidy-GMusic extension by running:

pip install mopidy-gmusic


Before starting Mopidy, you must add your Google username, password, and Android mobile device ID to your Mopidy configuration file:

username = alice
password = secret
deviceid = 0123456789abcdef

The mobile device ID is a 16-digit hexadecimal string (without a ‘0x’ prefix) identifying the Android device registered for Google Play Music. You can obtain this ID by dialing *#*#8255#*#* on your phone (see the aid) or using this App (see the Google Service Framework ID Key). You may also leave this field empty. Mopidy will try to find the ID by itself. See the Mopidy logs for more information.


The extension is enabled by default if all dependencies are available. You can simply browse through your library and search for tracks, albums, and artists. Google Play Music playlists are imported as well. You can even add songs from your All Access subscription to your library. Mopidy will able to play them. Public playlists are not playable yet.
