So Google finally decided to release it’s own cloud-music service. Unfortunately at this time most people can only download the music playing app, without access to their beta. So, with services like Amazon’s Cloud Player, why even need Google Music? Just some different sounding functions like:
- caching recently played music on your devices when offline–I like this–even in 2011 you may not always find decent wifi/3G/4G
- once your music is online, you always have access to it, playlists as well
- advanced playlist management and creation
- one media collection to update–that, I like!
For now, the beta will be free. I can see a monthly or yearly fee on this. For the convenience, I would pay $50-100 a year. All I need is the invite–come on Google!!!
