Given we have no plans on flatpaking or snapping this application, closing as wontfix. I'd suggest reaching out to the respective developers about supporting either of those distribution and container models, or taking on the initiative.

You don't need to support snap or flatpack, the google play music manager is a deb file, just repackage it like the other applications have been done on Solus

I took apart the deb file of Google Play Music manager and opened the data.tar.gz and copied the opt and usr files (DO NOT USE THE etc FOLDER, replacing the cron.daily or adding can break systems and isn't needed)

after moving the opt and usr files to my system and using menulibre to make a shortcut on my menu it works just fine.

This is closed source, just because they provide a deb file doesn't mean it is redistributable. That's why this is a Third Party Software request. We have no plans on adding any more items to 3rd-Party.

Ok thank you for your time, also updated my previous comment sorry.
