Online reports earlier reported that Google Play Music for Android in an update brought along an issue that was causing the app to crash for several users. The Mountain View-based internet firm according to reports by Gadgets 360 says the reason behind the crashes appears to have been found, and Google has already started rolling out a newer bug-fixing update for the app, which is reported said to carry along the fix for the problem.

In its testing, 9To5Google figured out that the Google Play Music app was crashing for users only when a Bluetooth device was already connected to the device. When the device was connected after launching the app, it seemed to work just fine, as per the report. While this fix seems simple, Google has already rolling out the version 7.9.4921 update, said to bring a fix for the issue.

The latest update appears to fixes the crashing issue that plagued the earlier version. According to Gadgets 360, “while the issue should not have existed in the first place, the search giant should be commended for acting quickly and issuing the fix right away for the problem.”

Notably, Google Play Music started offering a four-month free subscription for new subscribers, allowing them to scan up to over 50,000 songs from their music library.
