Google Music is here to trample all over iTunes Match...
If you still haven’t got into iTunes Match (whether you couldn’t figure out what it was, didn’t like the idea of paying £22 a year, couldn’t be bothered, never knew it existed), you might not be in a hurry to start now.
You might well be more inclined to take a look at Google’s new similar service, Google Play Music, that is FREE. It’ll match your library of music tracks and let you stream as many as 20,000 of them to any Android device with a connection.
If it can’t find some of your tracks in its hefty ‘cloud’, you can upload them and let them rain down into your Android device that way. Music can also be purchased from Google Play Music, with choons starting at 79p a pop.
So then – in summary – a Google version of iTunes Match, but without the nasty £22 a year fee. Seems reasonable.
