Streaming your music from the cloud on Android?

I read somewhere that you can upload your music somewhere and stream it anywhere to your computer or Android using Google services.

1. Anyone using it? How well does it work?
2. Where do you upload your files to?

Thanks.

Google music. YOu choose where you want it to upload from. I have it set to upload from the my music file on my laptop. Any new songs I download, I just save to that file and it is automatically uploaded and I can stream it anywhere that I can sync my google account or any device that can log into my google account. I think it works great.

Google music works great! I forgot I even had it loaded after I installed the mac part when it first came out. But it didn't forget about me... it had quietly uploaded all my iTunes music, and playlists.

So when I got my Nexus 4 I was pleasantly surprised to see all of my music, ready to play whenever I wanted. Sweet.

I was an iTunes Match user since it first entered beta last year. But I just let my subscription lapse as I won't be using it anymore.

Google Music + unlimited data is one of the biggest wins for me.

All I need is an official Google Music app for iOS and i'll be in heaven (gMusic does the trick for now though).

How much storage do you get?

What app do you use on Android to access the music?

Thanks.

Computer: any browser. Just visit http://music.Google.com

On Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....android.music

You get room for 20,000 songs. No space limit from what I've seen. I have a few large mixes uploaded with no issue.
