Create an instant mix

If you don't have a Google Play Music subscription, you can make instant mixes based on your favorite artists or songs in your library. You can see what's coming up next and skip ahead as often as you like.

As long as you're signed in to the same account, you can listen to your instant mixes on the Google Play Music web player, your mobile device, or Android TV.

Start a mix from music you like

To help Google Play Music create instant mixes with more music you like, you can rate songs by selecting the thumbs up and thumbs down icons Thumbs up or down.

If you don't have enough music in your collection to create an instant mix from a selection, try creating a mix using a different song, artist, or album.
