Google Music Beta Magnifier offers a free song a day

first_imgGoogle launched its Music site, Music Beta, four months ago, and just last month, Music Beta added Magnifier to the mix. The Magnifier feature suggests new music that Music Beta users should be listening to. Google’s touting Magnifier as “Music Beta’s new music discovery site.”If you’re one of the many people to have signed up for and received an invite to the beta site, you likely received an email in your inbox today about the Magnifier announcement. Although Magnifier has been a feature available for a few weeks now, Google  officially announced it today. So what’s so special about Magnifier? Google’s “team of music experts” picks a new artist every day that they think “deserve more attention,” or that someone on their team thinks are “pretty great.”Oh, did we mention that the daily picks are free? Each day you can add a new song for free, and even check out the Free Song Archive to add even more free tunes to your library. There are apparently “hundreds of free songs,” so if you’re looking for a good way to hear about some new music, Magnifier may be a good resource for you.In addition to a free song, there are often interviews and live video performances that go along with each song.Google’s Music Beta offers a maximum cloud capacity of 20,000 songs for free. The nice thing about Music Beta, like Amazon Cloud Drive and iTunes Match for Apple’s iCloud, is that you can listen to all your music from any WiFi-connected device. There’s also an Android app that lets you listen to your music on your phone or tablet, and you can save your favorite albums or playlists to your Android device so that you can listen to them when you lose network connection.Once you add a free song, it’s yours to keep forever in your Music Beta library. However, you can’t currently export your free songs from Music Beta to your computer, but Google says “this feature is on our roadmap.”More at Google Music Betalast_img read more
