How Will Google’s New Androd Music App Work?
With last week's announcements, Google made it clear that music is going to play a major roll in the services that it's rolling out in the coming months. Some are even calling Google the iTune's killer. But how will a Google music service work? This short explanation comes via Slate:
"Android will let you play all the music on your computer without syncing your hard drive to your phone...you'll do this by installing a small app on your desktop that will send your (non-copy-protected) music- whether it's in iTunes, Windows Media Player, or anywhere else - to the Internet... Once the files are online, your phone will have access to your entire music library whenever you've got an Internet connection... Even though the music doesn't live on your phone, it behaves exactly as if it does - it even includes album art. You press play and the song starts in seconds."
