I definitely agree with 2 of the 3 cons that were listed in the video.
- The adding of music to your library takes way too long, but that is balanced out by the fact that as of right now it's free and for those of us with large collections there aren't tons of products out there that will store our whole collections. Amazon's Cloud player only allows five free gigs, anything above that will cost you yearly.
- I would definitely love for there to be some kind of connectivity between Google Music Beta and Last.fm that would allow for users to share the music that they are listening to. I would imagine that at the bare minimum Google will begin to some how connect your plays/scrobbles to your Google Profile in someway since they do keep track of the amount of times you play each song within the actual Google Music site. The ability to actually share songs through embedding for streaming would be nice, but the music licenses still need to be worked out and after all it's still in beta.
- The ability to buy music within the app or website, I couldn't care less about. I see the purpose of the service as to allow me to take the music I already own with me wherever I want. I can buy music through Amazon MP3 through my phone already and who doesn't have an Amazon account.
As you can tell, overall I love it so far. The pros far outweigh the cons in my eyes and it is still in beta so I figure that these issues will all be addressed to some extent before the official roll out.
Thanks for stopping by,
