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!
