Another cloud music player…

… and this time it’s google. On they write

“Music Beta is a new service from Google that gives you instant access to your personal music collection without the hassle of wires or syncing. Add your music collection and listen on the web or any compatible Android device.”

So yeah, request an invite to listen to your personal music collection without the hassle of wires or syncing… except your music will no longer be your “personal collection” but rather another set of data points in the Google empire — and no syncing… unless you consider the time you initially spend uploading your music, or the moment it will take to sync your collection index to your android device before you listen. But at least it’s Google so it’s free*



*free for a limited time in beta. Neat.


Hi, Iā€™m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films/tv, synthesizers, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Switch gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all of this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Top 3 games? Let's go with System Shock 2, A Link to the Past, and Super Castlevania IV. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.

    this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense unless google is going to open a music store, otherwise there’s no direct pipeline to adding new music.
