There’s certainly no love lost between Apple and Google these days. Google has announced a service that’s aimed not just at Apple’s iTunes, but at Amazon’s Cloud Drive, as well. The idea is that Google will synchronize a user’s tunes between all of his or her Internet- connected devices: computers, Android phones, and tablets. It will have a capacity of 20,000 songs per user. The beta test version is available to US-based users by invitation only.
Apparently the tunes will be stored on Google’s servers — not users’ phones. Unless I’m missing something, this is a rare example of Google following in someone else’s footsteps, rather than exploring a new path. Watch the above video clip for Google’s explanation.
