    Got an android? Need music??

    Google Music Beta

    At long last, the worst-kept secret in the music industry has been confirmed: Google has launched its music service.

    On Tuesday at Google I/O, the company took the wraps off Google Music Beta. Currently, that site is invite-only, but users will be added to the platform soon. The product is “free for a limited time.”

    The service will be available starting on Android devices and via the web.

    Rumors of Google Music first fell on our eager ears in June 2010, at which time we learned Google was building a music service with an Android twist. And while building such software is clearly not a problem for Google’s high-functioning genius engineers, the company was still settling the terms of the deals with labels in September 2010 … and in November 2010 … and in December 2010 … and in April 2011. A less optimistic crew of journalists would have begun to doubt whether Google Music would, in fact, ever see the light of day.

    However, we were seeing enough proof vis-a-vis Android screenshots that the product itself was launch-ready, even if labels were not. Google Music was spotted on a Gingerbread device earlier this year, when gadget geeks saw a “music sync” option on an Android device. Music streaming options appeared on another device not too long afterward.

    Currently, here’s what we are being told about Google Music, which looks and feels exactly like an iTunes in the cloud:

    It will run on all Android devices, including tablets and mobiles
    You’ll be able to create custom playlists
    You’ll be able to edit track info, get play counts, etc.
    Music will be available when you’re offline, too
    Users can upload and store songs to a cloud-based directory
    Users can wirelessly and automatically sync playlists from the web to connected devices and vice versa

    warning!!!

    be careful, webizens: Anyone offering you a free google music beta invite is setting you up for a scam.

    The beta doesn’t let current users give out invitations to their friends, so no one has spare invites to give you. That includes mashable writers, your friends online, and any website claiming to be giving away google music invites.

    Any person or website claiming to be “giving away” google music invites is lying, a fact we’ve just confirmed with google representatives. Because of the way invites are handed out, they’re linked to specific google accounts. In other words, one person can’t request an invite and pass it on; the invite has to be requested and accepted by the same google account.

    So far, we’ve seen all kinds of scam and spam out there around google music, from cpa surveys to data gathering apps that prompt you to enter personal information. We should be more surprised at the alacrity of these scam-hounds, but with every great product comes great potential for fraud. Free ipod, anybody?

    If you see links out there for google music invites, don’t click them. Don’t tweet them, and don’t post them on facebook or anywhere else. The only link you need is music.google.com, the official website of google music

    Google music has been out of beta for a while now. With its 20,000 song limit GM is great way for music fans to free up space on their device! You really should have a look at it!
