This tool is not needed any more when using Chrome and having switched on the upload option in the web interface of Google Play Music. Chrome itself is then taking care of uploading your music from the given sources, and syncing your playlists from iTunes to Google Play Music. Worked so far for me.

Very easy to use and offers more options for free than iTunes Match... but both the desktop and phone app could use a bit more customizability.

This is to do with MU Desktop. Yesterday, I received the 1.0.71.8015 update (even though I've been using MU for several months?) and today, 1.0.91.1050 shows up.

Google's Music Manager version 1.0 on Mac OS 10.5.8 fails to connect to the Google Music Service with an error message of "Couldn't connect to Google play. Check your Internet connection and try again."

It looks like it is related to bad certificates as the same problem happened on the Google Music Manager ( http://support.google.com/googleplay/bin/static.py?hl=en&page=known_issues.cs&ki_topic=1335215 ), but I am not sure how to fix the problem on Mac OS 10.5.8.

It is free but it takes a long time to upload your music to it. I'm not convinced that this is worth the effort as it is running all the time. I see it puts itself in to your System Preferences/Login items without your express permission. This is not right.

You can specify it to only run when you explicitly say so.

Actually, you can sign up for Google music outside of the US, using a free VPN tool like TunnelBear (because Google only checks if you have a US IP address once, on sign up). Here's some handy steps to do it: http://www.vikitech.com/7881/sign-up-google-music-outside-united-states

We have the same problem watching BBC shows like SHERLOCK and DOCTOR WHO and BEING HUMAN that are shown first in the UK. Here's a towel to cry on.

I try it yesterday in Germany without any problem. It works fantastic and it's free. For iTunes Match I payed last year 25 Euros and it does near the same. The only bonus on iTunes Match is, that it sync existing music from the store with my own library to safe a lot of time and traffic AND I can download a good copy of old MP3 downloads in a better quality. For the last point iTunes Match is very great, but for the future I think I will using more the service from google to safe money. And the big bonus of Googles Play is, that I can listen or download my music around the world over a browser.

Yes it's free, but if it doesn't do what it's advertised to do, then it's still no good. Will not read a single playlist that I have created, and it will not even recognize all of my songs (only about 90% of them) to upload. Great potential, but falls flat.

The Google Music service is probably one of the coolest things that I've discovered so far. I can have my music anywhere I go as long as I have an internet connection--which helps a lot because I boot Linux from a usb on multiple computers while at school. The app itself is helpful. It sits in the menu bar and doesn't interfere with your work-flow and it's very easy to set up. The fact that it uploads new songs as you add them to iTunes is a big plus. My only complaint with the app/service is that it hiccups sometimes. It skips some songs, it marks songs as a "permanent failure on the server", and it can be extremely slow. But since it's free, I can look past all of this.

There is an app for the Mac for actually playing your songs without a web browser, for those interested: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/42651/g-ear . This G-Ear combined with Google Music Manager does constitute a good overall experience!

Thank you for that. I'll check it out, though from the Google media apps for Android, I'm initially doubtful.
