Google has now made official its long-heard-about music streaming service called “Music Beta.” It is essentially like the media locker of Amazon’s Cloud service, but without the ability to sell songs to consumers. Well, they could have but discussions with record labels did not go well.

Music Beta by Google enables users to store up to 20,000 of their own uploaded songs free of charge (at least while in beta). They can then stream their favorite tunes over the web using a desktop, Android phone or tablet, and any other device that supports Flash.

It can also let them create playlists manually or automatically by using the “Instant Mix” feature that makes a track list solely based on a single song. No need to download any software because everything is stored to the cloud.
