You can browse your music by folders, not by tags and playlists only.

Some of us have more.... er... eclectic tastes in music for Spotify. Not too mention I prefer uncompressed flac over Spotify any day. But hey, not everyone is an audiophile.

Listening to flac on a phone isn't audiophile. It's sounds cool though.

Good point there. But I am willing to bet that true audiophiles don't want to use m8 for listening to music.
But I guess that you already ditched your stock earbuds also. I enjoy using them and more than happy for spotify quality.

But back to topic then

holding down button seems to generate some kind of error, displays "Initializing" forever
but only on locked screen, on unlocked it launches Google Voice Search propertly
This is the reason I can't use the stock player even if I want to. The lack of "skip track" control with my headphone controls. Shame.

I use Google music all access so I don't have much of a choice. But having pretty much any song I want to listen to ever is worth it
