gpmusic

We all love free stuff right? Well, Google has made a move that you are going to appreciate. Starting today Google Play Music users can upload 50,000 songs to the cloud for free. They will then be able to stream or download those songs to their phone, tablet, computer and Chromecast when needed. The limit was previously 20,000 so this latest move is a pretty big deal.

The new limit is double what Apple allows its iTunes Match subscribers, which is 25,000 songs, however those subscribers can also listen to iTunes Radio ad-free. So I guess it’s a trade off. They also pay $24.99 annually for the service.

Google is set to muscle their way into the travel booking market with Google Flights. Google Flights is a new Search item that finds you the best deal on your travel.

Another benefit is that Flights is you don’t even need to know where you’re going.

Google says that over half of us want to go somewhere, we just don’t know where. We sit down to plan a vacation, but aren’t even sure where we want to go. We just want to get away. Cost is a big factor of course, so finding great deals on travel is important. It’s probably the number one factor for most of us.
