Is there a way to make GPM landscape mode actually look like it does while in lock screen mode? That looks way better...
Also, is it possible to force Google Now to work while using it? Siri works while I'm using the music player so I don't see why Google doesn't...

eyh man great mod, I'm just missing one thing : an option to add a direct shortcut to the sleep timer on the home page (or even better, on any page in the app for easy access).

do you think this would be possible ? :)

First, welcome to XDA.
Second, it's fixed when it's fixed. It's the first rule on XDA not to ask for ETAs, so please don't do that.
Btw, I don't have a problem downloading contents, you should check​ your internet settings/check if downloading works without XGPM enabled.

How to hide this notification?
I don't want to listen Justin Bieber, Gangnam Style or any Friday even for free subscription.
Thank you!

So, 7.4 completely broke most features of XGPM, means I've got something to do for the weekend (at least until Saturday afternoon).
Hope I can fix everything, I fear there may be some things that won't work anymore :/
Thank you for sharing that
I turn off automatic updates of Google Music.

I love this module, but I've found one thing annoying: the process involved in replacing artwork (i.e., resize/rename/convert an image to match the two or three jpg/webp files originally used by GPM). So I made a very simple batch script for Windows which uses ImageMagick to automate the process. The forum won't let me post a link to my script because I've written few messages, so what I'm gonna do is paste my script's code:

Code:
@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

:: Process the .jpg files
for %%f in (input/*.jpg) do (

:: If the file isn't target.jpg, change target.jpg's size to match the size of that file
if not "%%f"=="target.jpg" (

    :: Get the image size (resolution) with the identify command
    identify -format %%wx%%h "input/%%f">tmp.txt
    set /p SIZE=<tmp.txt
    
    :: Show a progress message
    echo Converting %%f; resolution: !SIZE!
    
    :: Convert and save file in the "output" folder
    convert "input/target.jpg" -resize !SIZE!^^! -quality 100 "output/%%f"
    )
)

:: Same as before but with the .webp files
for %%f in (input/*.webp) do (

    identify -format %%wx%%h "input/%%f">tmp.txt
    set /p SIZE=<tmp.txt

    echo Converting %%f; resolution: !SIZE!
    
    convert "input/target.jpg" -resize !SIZE!^^! -quality 100 "output/%%f"
)

:: Delete tmp file
del tmp.txt


How to use:
0) Install ImageMagick if you don't have it.
1) Paste the code in notepad, save it as "script.cmd".
2) Create two folders named "input" and "output". They must be named like that or the script won't work, and they must be in the same folder in which you put script.cmd.
3) Put the original jpg/webp files used by GPM inside the "input" folder.
4) Put the image you want to replace them with inside the "input" folder. This file must be named "target.jpg".
5) Run the script.
6) Check the "output" folder: your "target.jpg" has been resized/renamed/converted to match the original files used by GPM. Now you simply copy these new files to the "ArtCacheOverlay" folder in your phone's internal memory, restart GPM, and your new artwork should appear.

Which version are you using? I just updated to android N and would like to get XGPM back.
I have been used i think the oldest one xposed zip file for N.
Now I'm using the newest one and guess what? Module is working but I can not get to the settings app.

I meant which version of Google play music. But now that I think about it, the module probably isn't working on my N device.
I have restored version from Titanium backup of this module but I can not access to setting for example to turn off the app icon.

    So, as I recently switched to Spotify and Google announced YT Music as a soon-to-be successor to GPM, I'm sorry to inform you that I'll have to abandon the XGPM Xposed module. Additionally, I didn't have much time in the last few months to work on this anyway, so I guess this was kinda expected from most of you. I just committed the last set of changes I did in the last months, which should make the app work again with the latest GPM version. Some things might still be broken, e.g. the new NowPlaying screen, but it mostly works. You can download the last build here. Thanks for your continued support & bug reports!

    I'm too tired for a full changelog, basically fixes notification and Android M support, other changes on GitHub.
    Note that there might still be some bugs.

    Small update, apk attached.

    • I fixed the navigation drawer manipulation, a method return type change resulted in a ClassCastException
    • I fixed the new design crash which was caused by a weird NPE and Google's removal of voice control
    • Google removed the voice control feature again, probably because "Ok Google" can do the same, so I removed support for it as well
    • I enabled some features which are still hardcoded to false in the code (1 & 2), or disabled server side in some countries (3):
      - The upcoming Sleep timer (yay!)
      - The new full width search bar (like in Google Play)
      - The sound search if you couldn't use it before
    • In the next days, preferably tomorrow, I will add switches for the features, and also try to fix the empty bottom bar EDIT: Done!
    • I saw the other reports, I will check if I fixed them already or still have to do that

    Just pushed 1.11 to the Xposed repo. This fixes A LOT of issues, and supports GPM 7.0 (download from apkmirror if not available yet from Play Store).
    If you also don't really like the new home screen, you can revert to the old one ;)
    A known issue is that the new design isn't working in landscape anymore, I'm still not sure how to fix that yet.
