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.
With Google Play Music you don’t have to be a subscriber to be able to take advantage of this feature though. If you do subscribe to the service, you get access to 30 million songs which can be streamed on demand, but if you do not want to pay money, use the free service instead and store up to 50,000 of your own songs. You really can’t beat that.
Music lovers don’t have to pay anything to store 50,000 songs up in the cloud and they can be streamed through a wide variety of devices. All I can say is that this is awesome for music fanatics.
