Hackers Discover Google’s Cloud-Based Music Service

Unlaunched feature allows users to stream their music library from Google’s servers to their mobile devices

Hackers have discovered that Google’s rumored cloud-based music service not only exists, but is up and running. Users on a developers’ message board found that if they installed the leaked Honeycomb music player app in a certain way on Android they could sync their music collections with Google’s servers. In other words, they can now stream their music files remotely from Google’s computers to their mobile device.

As of yet, the hackers have yet to discover any space limit in Google’s cloud storage. That said, Google may not have set any limitations up since the service is not yet public.

Those who are capable of accessing Google’s music cloud now should enjoy the product for free while they can. When the company launches the service it is most likely going to be behind a pay wall so that Google can pay licensing fees to copyright holders.
