Google is holding its I/O developers conference in San Francisco today and is planning to announce it’s new cloud music service, Music Beta by Google. While it is in beta now and you can request a invite, the new service will allow you to upload around 20,000 songs to your “cloud” and listen to the music on any Android phone or Flash-compatible device. Notice that we mentioned Flash, this means all iOS devices are left out of the loop.
Google Music Beta is free for a limited time but requires an invite. Invitations can be requested from the launch site or you can be invited by another member. You may notice that Music Beta is similar to Amazon’s Cloud Player, but offers much more free space.
Apple users are left out of the loop with Google Music Beta, but can look forward to Apple’s expected announcement of an iCloud at WWDC in early June.
