Beta and Beta

Here’s the rub; Google Music was launched around the world yesterday with much fanfare but trying using it and you will join the majority of the global population in getting this message.

Google music offers some 13 million songs to the lucky few who can access it but does not have affiliation with one of the major labels – Warners.  Despite this, it aims to gazump Apple and Amazon and take the lead in the online music market.

It will be up to Google’s Android services to match iTunes as music is stored on the Cloud rather than on your own device.  As a user you can can store up to 20,000 songs on Google’s cloud servers and you will be able to share any songs you have purchased with friends on the Google+.

The cost of a song is US 99 cents and if you are an artist you can create your own space on Google Music and sell direct to the public.  That is, if they are in the USA.
