Google has entered the music market! The Google Music app has finally been taken out of beta and is now available to everyone via the Android Market. On top of that, the ability to purchase music from Google via the Android Market was also announced. So now you can listen to music via the Google Music app and then purchase the music via the Android Market. Nice and easy! The Google Music app itself will remain free, but the purchasing of music will obviously be charged to your account.
“For music fans, we believe today’s technologies … bring with them the capability to dramatically improve the digital music experience”, said Google’s Jaime Rosenberg, director of digital content for Android. “In fact, it’s what consumers have come to expect.”
What’s really cool is that you can sync all of your existing music library to Google Music for free! You can upload all of your own music to Google Music and stream it back to any of your Android devices. Check out the new Google Music website here: http://music.google.com
Interested in purchasing music that you don’t have? Within the next few days the Android Market app on your devices will start listing the “Music” store where you can purchase new songs to add to your Google Music collection. In addition, you’ll be able to listen to the first 90 seconds of song for free to test them out. Google will also be offering a “Free song of the day“, so even if you don’t purchase any songs you can still benefit from the new music section of the Android Market.
Want to test out the new Music options? As mentioned earlier, the new version of the Google Music app is available now. [Google Music App Link]
The Android Market on your devices will be updated for purchases over the next few days. Until then, you’ll have to visit the Google Music Web Market to take a look at the music that is available for purchase. [Google Music Web Market Link]
