I just got an email inviting me into the Google Music Beta! I’m excited about trying out this new cloud based music platform and blogging about it. The first thing I did was select from free music packs, which I think was an excuse for Google to see what kind/genres of music I like. I picked my favs and then was prompted to download a program. I did and it then asked me to sign into my account with google. After that, it asked me where I kept my music. I told it iTunes and it started scanning that folder. This took about 5 minutes, which seemed like a while, but probably just because I’m pumped about Google Music!
After it was done, it asked me if I wanted to open the player. I did and it opened it in a web browser, which I had set to Google Chrome. I could get in and listen to the songs that it had uploaded so far, and the songs I had selected from my song pack. I hit Shuffle All and it started playing through my speakers! I sounded great and I will probably start using this as my music player. Now the question is, how do I get my amazon cloud mp3s to the google music player?
