This week Goolge brought its music service out of beta and added the ability to buy songs, share them with friends with Google+, and the ability for any artist to make a artist page and submit their own music.
Android owners are really going to make impacted the most. When you open the market you may notice a few changes that have been made. The screenshot to the right is what the most current Market looks like. If you are not seeing yet it may have not reach your device. You can try forcing it to appear by going to your applications settings and clearing data. Previously you may have used Amazon’s MP3 Store to purchase your music but now Google Music promises to give you a seamless music experience between your desktop and mobile devices, they even have a Google TV app!
When you buy a song it will be added right into your music locker. You then of course own the song so you can download it or listen to it through the web or the phone app. You also can share the the song on your Google+ stream and your friends can have one full listen of the song befor they purchase it. You can also browse through all the music here and purchase it right from the web.
Google is also promoting Google Music by giving costumers free songs form some well known artists. A unique feature that I am pretty excited about is the ability for any artist to create their own music page and sell music through the new service. If you have the musical skills and you want to be in the music store all you need to do is go here and sign up with a one time $25 fee and you can start selling your music without the big record deal you have been waiting for.
So the real question is are you going to give Google Music your money? With the amount of Android phones in the market I think many will have exposure to the store and it could very well become one of the top musics stores of our time.
