Google today announced Google Play Music now lets you upload your own library by simply dragging and dropping files in the browser. Unfortunately, the feature is only available as a Chrome app, and it’s still a lab, meaning you have to manually enable it.

In addition to being able to upload music (you can also queue a long list by clicking “Add Music” in the top right), the new lab offers a mini-player (click the arrow in the bottom right corner) that shows what’s playing and lets you skip songs from any tab. Last but not least, the experimental app also lets you download songs, albums, and playlists directly from the Web.
