    Default Got my Google Music Beta invite

    Uploaded my music, installed the new app.
    Needed to reboot for it to prompt for login.

    At first, I thought Google Music would not be supported on the V due to OpenGL 2.0
    but a reboot did the trick

    I keep trying to sign up for it and it keeps telling me that it is only for the U.S. and I'm in the U.S.

    EDIT: I tried from my laptop and it worked. Not sure why it wouldn't work from Opera mini.

    It's because the phone's IP gets routed through somewhere in NZ last I checked. It's kinda odd.

    Because opera mini's servers are located all over the world and that is what it sees.

    Been trying to get Google Music (streaming beta service) to work, but continually crashes on my phone. Just wondering if anyone else had this issue ?

    edit: Ok I was trying to play music from the Artists tab, and would continuously crash. Once I figured out there were tabs at the top I switched to songs, and it would play.

    Seems trying to play from artist and album crashes the app for me. Playing individual songs work though

    Got my music beta invite earlier, had to do same thing as OP, had to restart the phone before it would stream. My music has been super clear on it even with 1 bar of 3G and driving around in the car. It seems the V just doesn't do the nice cover flow thing they show in the preview images, but it still works real nice.

    It says it's free during beta, anyone heard anything about the cost once it's out?

    Still no invite here
    Not sure how much Google will charge but it looks like Apple is gonna charge $25/yr for iCloud

    I think its unlimited, just takes a while to upload all your music.

    Can anyone that does have access, test out going to the mobile app, in the albums tab or artists tab, press the down arrow at the end of the row and choose play. The app continuously crashes on me when I do this. Would just like a confirmation if its just me or everyone. thanks

    Just curious. How long did you have to wait for your invite to come?

    I requested an invite about 4 weeks ago and got mine yesterday. I think there's a 20,000 song limit. I only have 2500... it's up to 1500 after 24 straight hours of uploading.... really slow. The free songs are pretty good. Seems like it works well, just don't upload from work and home at the same time, you'll get duplicates (the manager is kind of dumb). Wish there was an "hours total" for playlists. I created a Playlist "Freemusic" and dragged all the free music into it, just be nice to know how long that music will play. Decided to use it as my app on my Optimus, works well, wish it had the tablet interface.

    unlimited... that's great. I could free up some space on my ssd.
    Would you rely on it as the only place were you store your music collection?
    How the integration with iTunes? I use it to manage my music.

    I have noticed that it only "streams" the first time you play a song. All files are downloaded to SD ANDROID/Data/Com.Google.Android.Music/Cache/Music eating space massively as I listen to more and more music. They should just call this a syncing cloud,

    200,000 songs limit and I uploaded like 1000 so far. Slowest upload speed ever from TWC inn NYC.
    I checked all genres for free songs and I got the worst songs ever. Had to delete all of them.

    I believe they have a setting to select what songs you want saved on your phone for syncing basically, or you can just set them to stream only. I haven't got my invite yet, but I plan on playing with this feature a bit. =D
