FREE Songs & Cloud Storage with Google Music

Listen to your entire music library on the go with Google Music

Last week, I received an invitation to try out Google Musica new service from Google that gives you instant access to your personal music collection on the web and your compatible Android devices without the hassle of wires or syncing.

With Google Music, you upload your entire source of music from your PC into "the cloud" using the Google Music Manager.  It took hours to upload my 700 songs, but the Google Music Manager runs as a background task so you can keep working on your PC while the music is uploading.

Great for Accessing Music on the Go
After you upload your music to Google, you install the Google Music app on your Android smartphone or tablet so that you can access all your music from the cloud storage.  Now I was a very worried that the streaming music feature would not work that well.  I have tried using's cloud storage to stream music to my smartphone and it was slow and the buffering could not keep up with the progression of the song so the song would just stop mid play.  But Google Music worked perfectly.  I use Google Music to listen to my music while I do my 30 minute exercise walk and I have had no buffering issues.  The music played as smoothly as if it were stored on my smartphone.

FREE Music
One wonderful feature of Google Music is that it contains a library of FREE SONGS from popular artists like The Isley Brothers, Usher, Al Green, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and John Legend. You can download these songs to your PC and also upload them to your music storage in the cloud.

Request an Invitation
Google Music is currently in Beta so it has not been rolled out to every Google user.  But you can request an invitation so that you can try it out for yourself.  Watch the video below to learn how Google Music works.
