    How will this work? Does it merely look at files names and albums? I wonder how it verifies the song files

    Yep. I assume it's going to be like Album Art where if it's not an exact match, it won't work.

    I suspect the first step is trying to match like cover art. Then it might compare several seconds of the song it's working on. I don't think Apple is going to say exactly how the matching stuff works.

    In any case, having seen mistakes from cover art, I hope this is better at not making false matches.

    I do know I have many albums that are not available from iTunes, so it would be a few days at least probably to upload everything that it couldn't match.
