Google has released an update to its new Music app today, bringing it to version 3.0.1. The update is the first since the app was officially released a few weeks ago in conjunction with the announcement of Music Beta at Google IO. Changes include the ability to delete songs from the SD card from within the app as well as several general bug fixes.
The update comes as another wave of invites to Music Beta is being sent out. While I have personally found the app to be awesome (especially as an upgrade from the old Android music player), with a larger user base comes a larger base of complaints, and bug-fixes are never bad (so long as they don’t bring about new bugs…). The point here is that this isn’t a very exciting upgrade for sure, but it’s good to see Google standing behind Music.
While it has dramatically increased my data usage streaming, mostly due to me being too lazy to download the songs over wi-fi, Google music has if nothing else become a much more convenient way of syncing music to my phone then having to connect, mount, and transfer the files manually. As I said, Google appears to be pushing the invitations out a bit more freely now, so keep requesting invitations and if you’ve already got access leave a comment how you’re liking it.
