More Signs Of Google Music Coming To The Android Market

When visiting music.google.com from your Android device last night, you were presented with the above image. Reports have been circulating that Google is looking to launch their own music store within the coming weeks. When the page above launched, the “Learn More” and “Shop Android Market” links were both unresponsive. However, the first link will now lead you to Google’s introduction page for Music Manager, and the second has since been removed. It seems as if we found something before Google intended it to be found.

When ever I am listening to music on my device, and I am not on Pandora, I am using Google Music. While I can’t store all of my songs, I am fine with having 20,000 accessible anywhere. It will be interesting to see how Google will price various songs and how well they compete against Amazon and Apple.

    I’d love to see a Groupon thing done here.

    Choose a few songs weekly.
    Open the songs up for everyone to download/stream for free.
    People who downloaded the song is given 3 times to play it for free.
    They are also given the option to “Share” with people.
    Sharing will work in Google+, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
    The friends who will click on the share link will also given 3 free play backs, and again, the option to share.

    Now comes the catch:

    Every “Share” (they can even use the +1 API for this) is tracked, and the more +1 the song gets, the cheaper the price will be.

    Tracks will start at $1.99, but share it, and it can go down all the way to $0.49.

    Just my thought.

    Question: how is Google Music app different from “Sync Music” from my Google account on my Android?

    I have not checked this option ever, in fear that Google would try to sync (or download) all my 120GB of Music that took me 2.5 days to upload.

      Sync music just downloads a list of the songs you have in Google Music on a regular basis, i.e. updating the list in the background. It doesn’t download the actual songs.

    I hope the put out a subscription based service.

    • I would like to have multiple options, more options more people will buy into it

  • I hope they add a way to upload music from my phone to GM. Definitely need that feature soon.

    • Dominick DeVito

      Ummm, you can (assuming you’re using Android).

      Just go to Settings -> Accounts and Sync -> (Google Acct) ->and you’ll see Music as an option to sync.

      • Ray

        i dont think so im pretty sure you have to use to uploader from your pc

        • Dominick DeVito

          Actually, I stand correctly – sorry about that. You’re right. It sync one way (down from the cloud). Many apologies…

  • Levi Wilcox

    Recently a profile picture, a share tab and a cyan notification ticker started showing in google music. I hope they add more space though… I only have 50 songs left!

  • Kierra

    I dont use my google music beta. I should be ashamed

  • Jadam6118

    They should do a free song of the day like the amazon free app of the Day

  • So I have run into a frustrating limitation with Google Music.  I uploaded my music from one PC and then wanted to download it to my lap top with out having to go plug it in.  It does not seem to allow you to redownload, or am I missing the button somewhere?

    • Dominick DeVito

      No it appears you can only stream – use Chrome and get the extension, works just like a player anyway.

      Google’s trying to tell you this isn’t just a music locker in that you can utilize “the cloud” for listening to your music.

  • This is what I’ve been waiting for! I hope the songs do come cheap, though. What I love about Android is that they change the currency to your country’s currency – unlike iPhone.

    I can’t wait for song purchases with the existing Google Music app/beta. This will be the last piece of the total Android package from a usability standpoint.

  • Guest

    I already have Google music (beta user from Google I/O). It beats the crap out of iTunes.

    • Adam Elghor

      i like it but the quality just isnt as good as it would be if it was stored on your phone’s sd card

    “”It will have a little twist,” Rubin said. “It won’t be just selling 99-cent songs.”

    And what exactly do they mean by this…

      I hope it means it’ll have some spotify-like behavior additionally.

  • My Tran

    Nice music is in a portable cloud factor.

  • SugaShane

    I’m listening to Avicii – Levels right now, and the beat dropped as I read “20,000 of your favorite songs for free.” Nice. 

  • Dominick DeVito

    Music to my ears

    • Shrugster

      I hear that
