Title: How to make Google Play Music Manager see a modified ID3 tag?
Post by: gofffredo on 2020-01-26 20:30:48

I have Google's Music Manager set to watch my "Shows" folder on my Mac hard drive.  When I drop a new folder of FLACs in there, it does a pretty good job of uploading new shows to Google Play "My Music" after a few minutes; or if I'm impatient, immediately after I quit and re-launch Music Manager.

Recently I found the need to edit the ID3 tags of an album that Music Manager has already uploaded to My Music cloud.  Here is how I force Music Manager to "see" the modified files and, in My Music cloud, replace the stale versions with the new versions.  Has anyone discovered an easier way?

For the record, I immensely dislike using Google services for anything, but their cloud music interface is the only one that fits my criteria (integrates with Sonos, integrates with my Android phone, supports FLAC, web interface is tolerable to browse).
