Google Drive developer cguZZman says:

"You can export your music too, but kodi won't support it yet. It's a Kodi issue for now."


This has been an issue for a long time:

Is there any way that music streaming from the google drive addon can be implemented?  
What specifically is preventing this from working (when videos work fine)? 

FYI the google drive addon creates ".strm" files on your local machine that link to the file in google drive. 
My entire library of videos works fine with this method.  
I can import my music library, but the files will not play. 

Question: What can I / we as users do to help, encourage, complain, or motivate Kodi developers to change or implement this?
EDIT: correction... I cannot create ".strm" files
