Google Music Officially Launches in the U.S.

Google Music app allows users to purchase new music right from their Android device or PC
The app can be found in the Android Market
Back in May,
Google announced its music service
and launched Music beta at its I/O Conference for developers. Now, Google Music is finally here and ready to challenge the likes of Amazon's Cloud Drive and maybe even Apple's iTunes.
Music beta allowed users to upload up to 20,000 songs from their music collection to the cloud for free and stream it on any PC or Android mobile device.
Now, Music beta has grown into Google Music, and it offers a number of features for both avid music fans and artists.
Google Music is basically a
cloud-based music storage
service. Listeners can automatically sync their entire music library via the cloud across all types of Android devices as well as PCs. User-made playlists stay just the way they are across these different devices as well.
Google, of course,
wants you to buy
music in addition to bringing your own collection to the table. To help you out (rather, to help open up that wallet of yours), Google has released a new music store in the Android Market, which is fully integrated with Google Music.
The new music store offers over 13 million tracks from various artists. Songs or entire albums can be purchased right from a PC or Android-powered device, and the songs will be added to your Google Music library automatically.
The music store offers music from artists associated with many different labels, such as Sony Music Entertainment, EMI, Universal Music Group, Merge Records, Warp Records, Matador Records, Naxos, Merlin and XL Recordings.
Well-known artists are even offering extras exclusively to Google Music users. For instance, The Rolling Stones will offer a live concert album called
Brussels Affair (Live, 1973)
, which has never been released before. It's only the first of a six-part unreleased concert series that will only be available to Google Music users. Other artists that will offer content exclusively to Google Music users are Coldplay, Shakira, Pearl Jam, Busta Rhymes, Dave Matthews Band and Tiësto.
Google Music isn't just for the listener, though. It's also for artists who are trying to get their music out to the listeners. Google Music
out by offering the Google Music artist hub. This allows artists to build a page where tracks can be uploaded. The artist can then set a price for their content and sell it directly to listeners. All artists, whether they're new or well-known independent artists, can participate.
Google+, of course, would not be left out of the mix. Google Music will allow users to share one purchased song with your friends and family on Google+.
Google Music was officially released earlier today in the U.S. The app can be found
in the Android Market.
