Google have further diversified their product offerings, yesterday unveiling Google Music, a cloud-based music streaming service that is free to use.

Users can upload up to 20,000 tracks from their personal music collection, which can then be streamed from any web-connected device.

The library will then be synchronized and updated automatically, and original playlists from iTunes or other media players will be preserved, helping users “spend more time listening to your collection and less time managing it.”

To coincide with the launch, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) have launched a new music store on the Android Market which integrates with the new cloud service, offering some 13 million tracks.

As Google+ grows in popularity, Google Music is also optimized for sharing and collaborating on social networks.
