Only MPRIS extension that works properly with Google Play Music. Note that the chrome built-in MPRIS needs to be disabled for this extension to work. (go to chrome://flags and disable 'enable-media-session-service')

Works perfectly. I can control and even with the play/pause button on my keyboard (after mapping that to 'playerctl play-pause') :-)
