Google Music gets ‘drag and drop’ tools for browsers

28/03/2014

Google has launched a browser version of its music manager, meaning that users can now upload songs to the cloud player without needing to download any software.

The new beta test ‘Google Play Music for Chrome’ lets users upload songs and even monitor folders for updates.

The feature will eventually roll out to all users, but can be enabled manually from the labs section in Google.

Users will find an "Add Music" button in the upper right-hand corner of their Google Play Music interface on the web in their Chrome web browser starting this week.

Once Google Play Music for Chrome is activated, you’ll have to head back out to your library by clicking "Listen Now" or "My Library".

Click "Add Music" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, and you’ll find Google asking you to attach Google Play Music for Chrome to your Chrome web browser. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be able to roll out with simpler uploads.

Google Play Music lets users upload up to 20,000 of their own tracks to the service and access them on a desktop computer, or from an iOS device using the free Google Play Music app.

For a monthly fee of $9.99 users can also get Google Play Music All Access, a music streaming service similar to Spotify and Rdio.
