A new version of the Android music player app has leaked ahead of official release, updating the PMP software’s UI and bringing it more in line with the Android gallery app. Available from xda-developers if you’re willing to try out alpha software, the new app gets refreshed iconography but lacks the media streaming functionality which Google showed off at Google I/O earlier in the year.

Andy Rubin had shown how an Android device could wirelessly access a computer’s media library and stream content from it, or have files pushed across from the computer to land on the phone’s memory. That was expected for Froyo or Gingerbread but failed to arrive; it now seems it might be a part of this new music app, which could be released as a standalone upgrade or may be held back until Android Honeycomb, expected in the first half of 2011.
