How to Integrate Last.fm With Google Music

I switched back to Google Music for several reasons. However, I was already hooked on Spotify and missed one of its key features: Last.fm integration. Last.fm scrobbler can recommend music based on the tracks you frequently play.

If you would like to integrate Last.fm scrobbler with Google Music, here’s how to do it.

Last.fm on Google Music

Step 1: Download and install the Google Music Player Last.fm user script for your browser. Firefox users will need to Install Greasemonkey to manage scripts. Chrome users can install the script directly, but may need to force installation due to recent security changes. You can find instructions on how to install a third-party extension on Chrome in our previous article.

Step 2: After installing the script, restart your browser and open Google Music. If the script was installed correctly, you will see a Last.fm Requires Authentication link in the top-right corner of the Google Bar. Click on the link to open the Last.fm control panel for Google Music and enter your Last.fm login credentials.

Step 3: Once logged into Last.fm, configure and save the scrobbling settings. You can disable Last.fm scrobbling from the script without disabling the script itself.

Enjoy all your music on the clouds and scrobble them to Last.fm for recommendations. The script reveals secret settings that can be unlocked by paying $1. It’s up to you whether you make the payment and unlock the settings. Just remember to share what the secret settings were.
