Get you Google Music beta fix

by Volker Weber

If you have an Android phone, most likely you want Google Music. (App not available on iPhone). And we never had as many invites as right now. To sign up, you need to pretend to be in the US. Hotspot Shield is your friend. After that, you can use it anywhere.

Danke für den Invite. Hat sehr schnell alles geklappt.

Bisher funkioniert der Dienst auch recht gut (Android ebenfalls), auch wenn das hochladen der Musik ein wenig Zeit in Anspruch nehmen wird.

Anscheinend findet bei Google keine Umwandlung in eine bessere Qualität statt wie bei Apple, sondern es ist eher ein Cloud Store / Streaming Dienst?

So ist das. Bei iTunes Match geht Dein Geld an Apple und die Musikindustrie. Bei Google sharest Du Files mit Larry und Sergej.

Klappt bei mir trotz amerikanischer IP-Adresse (Hotspot Shield), dem Löschen der Cookies und Anlegen eines nagelneuen Google Accounts nicht: "We're sorry. Music Beta is currently only available in the United States". Interessanterweise werden die Google-Links auf der Seite dann in deutscher Sprache angezeigt ("E-Mail Kalender Text & Tabellen Fotos" etc.) Keine Ahnung, was ich übersehen haben könnte ...

@Michael: my invite failed in the same way when I used hotspot shield 1. I later stumbled upon hotspot shield v2.06, and got connected.

@Vowe: Could you add the version requirement to the Hotspot Shield tip?

@Lars: Thanks, it also worked with the latest Mac version 1.582

I'm still not quite sure what the use case for Google Music is. I have 32GB on my SD card in my phone. That's a lot of music - not the whole collection, true, but a lot. I listen to music on my phone when I'm traveling - at home I have my stereo and at work my laptop (if at all). When I travel, often times I'm roaming, i.e. streaming is extremely expensive.

It all sounds like I'm not in the target group. Or am I missing anything?

Doesn't work for me, even with the latest hotspot Shield on Mac OS X 10.7
