During Tuesday’s session of the 2011 Google IO Devel­op­ers Confer­ence, Google announced their Music beta.

Google Music is a new service that connects your music to the cloud. It allows you to listen to your music anywhere and keep every­thing in sync auto­mat­i­cally – no cables, no files!

Here’s how it works:

First, request an invi­ta­tion here. Once you’re accepted into the beta, upload your music collec­tion to Google Music. Once loaded into Google Music, you can listen to your music online, from an Android device with the Google Music app (avail­able on Android Market), and offline. Your music is always avail­able with Google Music and playlists are auto­mat­i­cally kept in sync. The idea behind Google Music is simple: Spend more time listen­ing to your music and less time manag­ing it.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!
