Google Music – Putting Your Music In The Cloud!

Google Music Beta
For USA Based Users
(and others possibly by proxy)

In addition to all of the work going into the Google+ social network launch,  Google has been working on a number of other services including the new Google Music (beta) service.

While currently it’s only available in the States (due to legality issues yet) many international members have managed to get Music accounts using a proxy server.

Google Music is essentially an online music library (works with iTunes and Windows Media Player libraries too) where you can upload your own music (and you will also find a pretty sweet collection of well known free music courtesy of our friends at Google), store up to 20,000 tracks and once the music is in the cloud you can play it from any device with internet access.

To learn more, check out this little tutorial from Brankica on getting started with Google Music.

So I just got my invite for the new Google Music service, which is still in beta and is invite only.
 
I thought since Google gives every new account 4 invites, that I would give them to my readers!
 
I assume that these are going to go super fast, but the 1st four people to reply with a comment below, and share their thoughts on any of Google’s new services, with their gmail address, I will be giving you access to Google Music!

You can either leave the comment using your gmail address as the comment email  – or – you can write in the text body the part of your gmail address that is before the @symbol. I would NOT type out your full address as that could get you some spam and I’d like to avoid that for you.

I like being able to upload media to it from my PC and then stream it later from my phone (since the memory card on my phone is almost full!)
 
I am working on adding Google Music to my other accounts, so will try to get some more invites.
 
Who are going to be the 4 lucky people?
 
Hurry and request your invite now! And tell me what you think of Google’s projects, platforms and new services!

Google is innovative, always trying to implement new ideas. No doubt just now Google music is restricted to American only, it will surely be available to whole world. Am I right Kim?

I really love Google and also searching some love quotes in Google. Google is very helpful site because if you have some problem that you need to solve you can search it in Google, and if you feel bored you can listen a Music in Google. Nice article Kimberly. ;)

That sounds like a great fun! I would definitely love to give a try that google music. That seems to be a great service and I do really hope it's going to be worth it to try. I am actually looking for a new service to use for my new project!... Keep posting!

Hi Kim,

Many thanks for the update. Google music does sound like a great service. All I can do is hope it is a success and they will introduce it to Europe quickly. All the best Rosemary

Thanks for the great post Kim,

This is the first time I have heard about Google Music and it sounds like it's going to be pretty amazing. It's great that more services like Dropbox and services that use clouds are popping up. It's almost a way to non-localize the computer. More and more can be accessed anywhere from any computer/ device.

Hey Kim, that's an interesting idea, Google Music. What will they think of next, really! When we remodeled our house, I was trying to figure out some way to be able to stream music from my pc throughout the house. I placed wires all through the walls in preparation, but still there hasn't been the ideal solution. Maybe this is it? There are solutions out there but they have been expensive and complicated. But maybe something as simple as this will do the trick? Time will tell! Thanks for the update.

Hi Kim - while I would love an invite I believe as with most stuff I cannot have one in the UK. Shame but thank you all the same - reading your stuff on G+. Much appreciated - d

Hey Kim - Thanks for the opportunity. Personally I'm loving the Google+ because I'm using it coming from a place with more knowledge on how best to use social media to speak to my target audience.

Love the circles and the ability to send specific stuff to specific circles. As a full-time flight attendant building my network on and off line, it gives me the ability to stay in one place, yet speak to the right people and the right time.

The concept behind google music and am very keen to give it a chance. With the emergence of g+ I can now pretty much do ll my stuff in one place now. Adding music to that would be a great thing.

Kim I have followed your work for a while. This is the first time I have posted on your blog. Thanks for the head up on G+. Even though I am outside of the states (New Zealand) I am really keen to get my hands onto the Google Music as pretty much everything in my businesses is now being Hosted with Google. I create hypnotic audios...that allow people to relax...Please I'm keen as.

Hey Debi, I think that's a great example of what Google is striving to build and sounds like it's definitely working for you! I love that when used strategically public posts are sort of like blog posts, limited posts are sort of like tweets, and a post to a single person is either an email or a direct message. A very dynamic way to work for sure!

Kim

PS: Just ran out of invites but I should have more on my other accounts soon. I'd recommend applying at the link above for one however if you don't get it before I get more I'll send you one as soon as I have some. Shouldn't be too long since they are moving to open the doors a little more this week but still very limited.

Hey Steve, that is exactly the kind of ecosystem that Google is hoping to grow! They want people to be able to find everything they need within the platform and now G+ makes it all social. It's great to see you've picked up on this trend! I’ll send your invite along momentarily :)

Hey Karyn, great to connect with you again here. I'd love to learn more about your music. I'm a avid fan of Bandler, biaural beats, and other techniques and teachings that affect the subconscious. I’ll send your invite along momentarily :) If you have anything openly shared that readers can give a listen to feel free to reply with a link as well would love to have a look.

Hey Robert, would you kindly let me know when it arrives so I know what the lag time is on delivery from them to the receiver? Google's notoriously bad for being sporadic about that stuff. Thanks!
