We first reported news that invites for Music Beta were being sent out to Motorola XOOM owners last week, but as of today, its looking like Google has opened the flood gates to almost everyone. While Ive been using the service for a week (and love it) thanks to an exclusive invite for attending Google I/O, another of my email addresses just received an invite. Also, our very own Timotato just got his as well as a ton of our followers on Twitter. Its looking like a good day for music fans. Check those inboxes!

I went to the Music Beta website and went to request an invite but I think their servers crashed or something because it says im sending automated queries

They will be coming OTA with the GB release I was afraid that..... This is bad news, because the OTA is a lie.

I'm not sold on this service yet. Why would I want to stream music I already most likely have on my phone and computer?

for me, I've loaded music to my online library, and right now I'm accessing it on my computer at work. That's lovely.

I guess I just don't own enough music for this service to be effective. I listen to Pandora more than anything.

Well I have about two weeks.worth of music. And.I'd.love this service since I get 3g in the meat room at work. It'd rule to be able to store on the cloud. But still awaiting my invite lol

Simply to save storage space. Instead of loading your music on to your device you just upload it to the "cloud" and stream it anywhere you go.

Can anyone help me out with an extra invite from their account?? Really want to try the service.

Probably not... Most people haven't received them. You know that you can request your own invite, right?

Already did, just wanted to try it now instead of months from now. Figured someone could spare an invite to pass it on to the board. If we all did that, we would all have it just like when gmail first was in beta.

I would love it too, as I'm waiting for an invite, but I don't think that people have invites that they're not sharing.

Not the same as Gmail, as Google decides who get's invited...you can't invite other people. People would share if they could, I'm sure...

i'm wondering about the quality of the music files.
is the quality of the files you upload the same as what's being streamed?
when i considered doing this months ago with audiogalaxy, they told me the songs would be those that i would upload but the quality would not necessarily be the same. they said the system would automatically search out a lower quality stream, and in fact, audiogalaxy was not accepting wav files.
i didn't join because all my sound files are uncompressed.

Still no invite... I'm wanting to see how it compares to the Amazon's cloud service and player that I've been using for nearly a month now.

I like it so far uploading takes forever though I'm at 550 out of 15000 and I started 12 hours ago. Wish the app had features like poweramp too

I've been listening mostly on my work laptop which sounds terrific (wifi). Today I tested it out in my car (on 3g) and it reminded me of Pandora quality. Still pretty awesome though.
I wonder if that's by design or just in my head.

isn't there some way to stream the files from your own computer to a remote mobile device? or is that a lot of money?

Audiogalaxy does this and it's free... Not really the same as having the music on "the cloud" though. I used it for a while and will probably start again if I don't get my invite soon.

I'm thinking it's going to take about 40 days to up about 15000 songs but totally worth it. Streaming is working amazingly and my sd card is almost empty!

Got my invite last week, took about 24 hours to upload 10,500+ songs. Had a few that wouldn't upload, said they were protected by DRM. Funny thing is, I ripped them myself but for some reason I ripped them in WMA instead of my normal MP3. re ripped them in MP3 and everything is cool now. :)
