I'm unable to purchase songs that I like from the Google Play Music store that are identified by this app. there is no button that will take you to the song or album so you can purchase or add to your wish list. asking the assistant and the hitting the buy button just brings up a blank screen. it's a minor inconvenience, but it seems intuitive.

I play music all day long on the radio, and the "Now Playing" app doesn't pick any of it up. Whenever I'm in my car I play CDs and the app doesn't pick that up either. I've got it enabled on my phone so why isn't it keeping a history of the music I listen to? I have tried several so-called fixes including turning off battery optimization, but nothing has worked. It's a worthless app to me.

The "Now Playing History" function is buried in the Android settings. There's no app shortcut in the app drawer. Adding the action shortcut to a home screen doesn't persist across reboots. That's my primary complaint. It does a decent job of detecting regionally-appropriate music; a worse job of identifying soundtracks or international music.
