Google Play Music not working on Firefox for Android


(Web Compatibility :: Site Reports, defect, P5)

(Whiteboard: [country-all] [notcontactready] [serversniff]) is the Google Play music player.

On Chrome on Android it gets served a mobile version and works.

On Firefox for Android it gets served a mobile version but doesn't work.

On Firefox for Firefox OS it gets served a desktop version and grinds to a halt.

This certainly works for me if I have the app installed (I get a web page that looks mobile specific and a button to open the app), not sure about if it isn't (my phone is a bit broken at the moment so would rather not change this).

Perhaps this can be closed?
Perhaps, sounds good - thanks for testing. At this point it's probably not worth it to split this into one Fx Android and one Fx OS issue if it's only working for one of them. I hope somebody can test the no-app-installed case though, have asked around on IRC for that.
Priority: -- → P5
As my personal testing shows, with Firefox for Android 53b7:
accessing Google Play Music WITH app instantly loads Google play music app without asking

accessing Google Play Music WITHOUT app (or hitting back in app to close )gives only mobile page suggesting to subscribe or install mobile app (no playback offered) 

with "show desktop version" mark actual Play Music Library loads, but playback is not working for some reason (just rotating spinner with no sound).
