Remember Music Beta, Google’s online music locker service that was unveiled at Google I/O in May this year. If you forgot or new, “Music Beta, lets you upload your personal music collection to the cloud and listen to it on the web or your Android phone or tablet. Since the beginning, our goal has been to help you fall in love with your music all over again, and now we’re taking that idea one step further.”
A new feature launched today hopes to keep people interested while they work on making it better. Googlers today introduced “Magnifier,” a new music discovery site that will keep your collection growing,” announced Paul Joyce, Product Manager for Music Beta.
“Magnifier will feature great music and the people who make it, 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,” explains Joyce. Each day, the blog will be updated with a “song of the day” that can be added to your Music Beta account with one click.
“The weeks’ featured artist on Magnifier is Grammy-nominated indie rock band My Morning Jacket. Google is giving away two of their tracks to Music Beta users, one of which is an exclusive to Magnifier: a live performance of “The Day is Coming”,” Joyce informs.
To get these free tracks and other songs in the Free Song Archive, you need a Music Beta by Google account. Head over to Magnifier, find the songs you want, click on the “Add free music” buttons and the tracks will be instantly added to your library in Music Beta.
That’s great, but there is still no way to purchase music in Music Beta. In order to get music into Music Beta, you have to upload your own MP3s. Or, begining today, stop by Magnifier regularly to get the free Song of the Day and reignite your passion for music.
