Google on Wednesday announced that its Google Play Music service will now let users upload up to 50,000 personal songs. Up 250% from its previous allotment of 20,000, the feature works for both paid and free accounts. Indeed, you can take all of that music you’ve got on CD’s and hard drives and put them in the Google cloud. Once there, you can access them from a variety of platforms including Android, iOS, PC, and Mac. What’s more, you can also stream your songs to a Chromecast.
Here’s how you can store your music online today:
- Sign in to Google Play Music – Go to your computer and visit play.google.com/music. Sign in with your Google account if needed.
- Claim your free storage – If you’d like to try our subscription service too, click “Get Started.” Otherwise, click “No Thanks” to continue with the free storage.
- Add your music collection – The setup process will guide you through adding our Chrome app, which provides seamless uploading. You can choose to simply upload your entire iTunes library or select other music folders.
- Access your music everywhere – You can stream or download music to your Android, iPhone or iPad for easy offline listening. It’s also all available on the web when you’re on your computer. And best of all, when you upgrade to a new computer or phone, your music comes along, too.
