Googles Music Beta is a rather simple service, at it’s core, it’s a vast online music locker, similar to what Amazon rolled out earlier this year with Cloud Player, and can be considered a Dropbox or mSpot that’s specifically enhanced for music delivery.
Very much unlike Amazon’s offering, however, Google wasn’t able to find agreements with major record labels allowing music purchases.
So you’re not able to buy a track or album through this new service, shops are only links to at Google’s website again.
In the meantime Google is giving users an online hub to store up to 20,000 tracks at any bitrate, and at least for now, it’s free.
This all is far from what we’d expect from a Google product— it’s a web of confusing programs without a lot of instruction as to how to actually get to the music you want to hear.
