Google Music Beta

Google Music offers the ability to stream your music to your phone, but also to keep your song files on your phone for offline use. Google Music is for Mac and Windows.

Sign-Up

So, let’s walk through the process that has been made public by Phandroid.

First we got sent an email:

Then, we followed the instructions in the email and clicked on the provided link, which led us to this:

Next, we had to agree to the super long terms of service:

You’ve also got to agree to a privacy policy.  I wonder why they didn’t bundle these together?  Probably a feature exclusive to IO attendees, you’re then able to add a bunch of free songs to your Google Music library for free. These are famous songs and there are at least a couple hundred of them.

After this, you’re finally asked to download the Music Manager:

    And then there’s iSyncr and Easy Phone Tunes for Android

    iSyncr is the best I’ve seen so far and it’s mainly because it’s not a bulky app that is installed on your PC. Instead, it’s around a 500Kb exe that you run after connecting your phone. It simply lets you choose which playlists (including all music, podcasts, etc) to sync and then sync. Nothing more to it. It’s great!

    DoubleTwist is too bulky and has too many issues in my eyes. They’re player is OK but drops down to “suck” range due to not being able to find songs by Genre… what!?

      this is not syncing because you can’t fetch any modifications done on the phone (like stars or playlist changes). this is just copiying. I can’t find any software that truly sync both ways from itunes to android
