Google has today introduced “Magnifier”, a new music discovery site that will keep your music collection growing and save online.
In May, If you remember Google unveiled their “Music Beta” service at I/O developers conference. Music Beta lets you upload your personal music collection to the cloud servers and then you can listen to it online on web, on your android phone or any tablet.
Today, a new feature “Magnifier” has just been introduced which is basically a “music blog” hosted on blogspot platform. It is being said that it is launched to remind people about Google’s “Music Beta” service again, which has been in “beta mode” since it was announced in I/O. After logging onto Magnifier, you can see posts in blog style that feature Artistes and their free songs. You can add these free songs to your Library in Music Beta by just clicking “add free music”. However, there is still no option to buy music as Google probably hasn’t yet finalized its deal with any record label or studio.
According to Google blog, “Magnifier will feature great music including videos of live performances, interviews with artists, explorations of different musical genres and free songs that you can add to your Music Beta collection.”
To use this service, you only need a music beta by Google account ( in case you don’t have, request an invitation here). Music Beta is currently only available in the United States, which is a disappointing news for the music enthusiasts residing in different parts of the World.
