The craze for Google’s Jelly Bean is picking up, like a storm brewing in the distance, ready to unleash its wrath just to get a taste of that currently awaited Android OS. There’s no doubt that users are willing to do anything to get it, but Jelly Bean is just not coming yet, except for some devices that have already received their update.

But, one of the goodies that Jelly Bean brings is coming your way. It’s a leaked Google Music app version 4.3.605 which could probably let you taste Jelly Bean — or at least a small sweet bean.

Google Music allows you to listen to your music collection anywhere and any time since it’s stored online. This means that you can access your music whether you are using your computer or your mobile device.

This leaked Google Music APK worked for some devices but didn’t for others, so the odds of installing it successfully is not that high but not that low, either. There’s only one way to find out–by trying it. See the requirements and instructions below if you want to install the Jelly Bean Google Music app on ICS devices.
