Google Officially Launches Google Music
A new Google product is officially upon us and it’s Google Music. The Beta version was available for a good chunk of time and it allowed users to upload up to 20,000 songs, free of charge, to the cloud, so it could be streamed no matter the user’s location. Well, now the service has been upgraded with the launch and there is so much content and convenience that will be yours for the taking.
The new, improved version of the service includes some key content from some of our favorite bands like Coldplay. In addition to quality content, the service is meant to be streamlined so you spend more time listening to your prized collection and less time organizing it. Purchases and uploads are synched across all devices. Yes, we agree. It’s amazing.
Here’s a sampling of the content you can find: Coldplay fans will be treated to a free, live recording of ‘Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,’ a five-track live EP from their recent concert in Madrid and a remix of ‘Paradise’ by Tiësto. If you love Shakira and her hips that don’t lie, a live EP from her recent concert in Paris and her new studio single, ‘Je L’Aime à Mourir’ are both available and for free. Good, free music? We like!
There is also a Google Music-affiliated store for the Android, where you can browse oh, you know, 13 million tracks from artists the across the Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and EMI family, as well those affiliated with thousands of indie labels.
You can purchase individual songs or entire albums right from your computer or your Android device and they’ll be added instantly to your Google Music library, and accessible anywhere. Did we mention how easy Google Music makes things? It’s nirvana — not Nirvana!
And there you have it.
Now watch this amazing video that celebrates music in the digital age. We love that the designers who put this together even yanked vinyl out of retirement to make a point. Evolve or die, right?
