Tech Alert: Google Play adds ‘Music’

I’m not quite sure exactly when this happened, but today I noticed that my Google Play app now lists ‘music’ as one of its many options (in addition to Apps, Books and Movies).

A closer inspection reveals that together with the free player app (available as a separate download), I can now search for, play samples and of course, buy music, and then play MP3s on my Android phone. It looks like that any purchased music is held in the cloud (so no worries about phone storage issues – but the the device will obviously need an internet connection), whilst the app also picks up all the stored music on the phone as well.
