gMusic, Google Music app for Window 8/Windows RT adds offline playback

gMusic on a Surface RT
Playing Google Music on Windows 8 and Windows RT gets better and better with the excellent gMusic for Windows Store. The latest update to the app adds an offline mode so you can listen to music while you out and about without internet access (you can pin tracks as you can with the Android apps). Also the app now pre-downloads the next track in the queue so there is no waiting for your songs.

You can read my full review of the app here and you can download the updated version from the Windows Store.
