Google Brings Web Music Uploading and More to New Play Music for Chrome Lab

by John_A

Google Play Music is a great service that many take advantage, as long as their country has support. Every track or album you buy through the Play Store is instant;y available on all your devices and online. You can listen to them right then and their, or even download them. The buck didn’t stop there though, you can also add up to 20,000 of your own songs to your account and Google would pull the information needed, sort them out for you and swap them for higher bit rate versions.

The more annoying part of the upload process was that you had to install the app to your PC and direct it to a folder on your hard drive to upload form. A necessary component, but a rather irritating one for many. Today Google Play’s G+ page let loose an announcement of a new feature in the Labs section for Google Chrome users. The new Lab option lets you simply drag and drop tunes from any PC directly to your Google Music account.

The Google Play Music for Chrome also has a handy little mini player that can be moved around your screen at will. It has all the controls to pause, change tracks, thumbs up or down , shuffle or repeat. Not to mention the cover art too.

Hey, that is why this is a lab feature though. Give it a whirl and let Google know what they need to change before it makes it main stream.
