Hey! Could anyone tell me if the Play Music app supports .flac audio that I have on my internal storage? Would it sound the same as when I use an alternative music application? Thanks

It didn't for me. When I tried it the FLAC files would show up but not play. Also, what are you using to listen to on the go? You'd need to have some crazy good IEMs or high end portable headphones with a good amp/DAC to take along to be able to hear the difference between the FLAC files and a 320kbps MP3 file.

Good question. On the go I use Galaxy S4 headphones, but at home I have some speakers to enjoy the difference. Besides, it feels good to use more space on my Nexus 5 haha.

Alright. Well, see if the files play. If not, I know they work with PowerAmp.

Flac should work with GPM. Keep an eye on your media server drain though I find it goes way up.
