Google Play Music

Google announced on Tuesday that its Google Play cloud-based streaming music service with song matching is now live in the United States.

The application, which launched in Europe last month, allows you to store 20,000 songs online and access them anywhere — whether it’s from an Android device or through a Web browser. Google said it will scan your music collection and “quickly rebuild it to the cloud” so that you don’t have to worry about syncing tunes to your phone or tablet before you head out on a trip. The quality isn’t bad, either. The company promises that you’ll receive tracks streamed back to you at up to 320 kbps.

I’m still a huge fan of Spotify, because I love the playlist feature and the ability to see and listen to tracks that my friends and family are playing. Still, I’ll be sure to give the new service a whirl as I travel home for the holidays this weekend.
