Ice Cream Sandwich Release Date Made More Exciting With Google Music

Android 4.0 is set to launch any day now after Google promised the software would be released on the new Galaxy Nexus smartphone due before the end of November.

With that release quickly approaching Google has been implementing new and exciting features into its OS including its revamped Google Music streaming service.

The new Google Music was unveiled by the company at an event in Los Angeles, CA yesterday afternoon.

The service has been in beta for the last three months, but this official version includes some exciting new features.

Music will still be accessed through the Music Manager application.

This lets users upload songs to the web locker for streaming on various Android devices.

Anyone using Google Music can upload up to 20,000 songs free of charge and have them available while they are offline on any of their Android devices.

Android also offers an impressive iTunes-like music store that can be accessed through the Android Market.

Millions of songs will be available in the Google Music store that can be purchased from either the Android or Music webpage.

Prices on songs range from 99-cents to $1.29, similar to those on iTunes.

Users can also download 90 second previews of any song on the services in 320k MP3 form, as well as share music with friends using Google Plus allowing them to listen to a full free play of a song once it is shared with them.

Google also announced that their iOS music app is also on the way.

One more feature unveiled at the event is Artist Hub that allows artists to share music with fans.

Artists can market themselves on it by building their own unique artist page to upload content onto and sell their songs.

Upcoming songwriters can use the service for $25 a year.
