Any chance? I imagine it would be quite a bit of work, but the gains are big too.

Edit: Perhaps I should clarify that I mean streaming my own google music library (what you can do with a free account), altough i wouldn't imagine it's any different from streaming other music with a paid account, like with Spotify.

Have you tried installing the Google Music App? I did but couldn't log in, but I have not yet installed the Play Store, maybe it needs that.

No, I don't know how to install that. Yandex store doesn't seem to have any apps by Google. Also the actual webpage https://play.google.com/music/listen seems unable to finish loading the library.

Non-native workaround: Google Music works with Opera Mini (at least for me), download the .apk with the stock browser from here: http://www.opera.com/mobile/android . Click 'Download the app here' Then go to settings-> transfers and install.

To know if there is chance, look if there is a open-source music player with Google Music support. If you find one, the chance is big that somebody could implement it. I don't know if the Googl-music api is documented.
