Google Play Music may get browser upload support, code suggests
A fragment of found code seems to reveal that Google Play Music users may soon be able to use any web browser to upload their songs to the cloud, instead of having to install a dedicated application.
Right now, in order to upload your music collection to Google Play Music you need to install and use the official Music Manager application that’s available directly from Google, with support for various computer operating systems including Windows, Mac and Linux.
Unofficial Google System blog received a tip from a user that suggests a more convenient way of uploading music tracks to Google Play Music may arrive at some point in the future. As you can see in the image above, the code reads:
Drag songs or folders here to add music to your library. Or, if you prefer, select from your computer.
While it’s not clear at this time when browser support is coming to Google Play Music, the feature certainly appears to be considered by Google as an alternative way to upload music and, if implemented, it will help users upload music faster than before, as well as use computers that don’t have access to Music Manager, or on which the app can’t be installed in the first place.
We’ll be back with more details about it once we have them.
