Google Play Music: configure maximum quality

By default, Google’s music streaming service only streams songs in “medium” quality to save data consumption. In this age of almost unlimited 4G mobile data and fiber optic packages in our homes, we can appreciate superior audio quality. In addition, with connected speakers / Bluetooth more and more widespread in our homes and apartments, online music is the way to listen to music that has imposed itself, to the detriment of the hi-fi system with CD player and even USB keys stuffed with MP3 files.

Like Deezer, Spotify and other streaming services, Google Play Music gives the possibility to listen to albums, songs, playlists, radios. In paid subscription or in free use, the music streamed by Google is by default broadcast in “average” quality while there is a “high” quality to improve listening.
