iTunes Match? Wait up, there’s Google Music as well!

Standard

See you have been pondering iTunes Match for a while, and love all the features that it gives you; letting you have all your music with you on your phone without it actually taking up space i.e stored in the Cloud and streamed to you. All you do is just upload all the music you own using iTunes and then there you go (with a £20.99 per year charge). However some things bug you like only being able to stream through an Authorised iTunes computer or an iOS device you have logged into and the fact that your poor Android phone is left out?

Well, look no further. Google has brought out the copy of iTunes match and the best part, it’s free! Google music allows you to store up to 20,000 of your songs to be streamed to you through you through a native App on your iOS or Android device or through a web browser on any device including mobile handsets. The service is free for all who have a Google account and is simply one of the best moves Google has made with its freemium options.

I was quite interested in iTunes Match, however thought that there must have been a cheaper option, somewhere… And then Google came out with this. It really is a nice addition to their lineup of services and I would recommend it, even if you don’t intend to use it, Just as a back up for all your music as you can redownload it at any time. To get started just go to http://www.music.google.com and download the app for Mac or PC which will allow you to upload songs from anywhere. Then, let the app do it’s work. In the meantime you might think about downloading the Google App from the Apple App Store to access your music from everywhere.

Happy listening! I hope this helped!

The streamlined look of Google Music is a compliment to the excellent service it provides.
