The cat is out of the bag and Google announced it’s out of beta and in the production mode with Google Music. Accompanying the Mountain View-based search giant was T-Mobile and it is offering free music every week until the end of the year to celebrate the new digital music store. Featured artist giving away the free tunes include, “Drake, Maroon 5, Busta Ryhmes, and others,” per the T-Mobile email we received, in it’s entirety below.
So, if you’re on T-Mobile, enjoy. If not, hey, maybe this is your reason to move over, music fan.
Today, T-Mobile joined Google at a press conference in Los Angeles to launch Google Music, a new platform where you can upload your personal music collections for free, discover and purchase songs from your favorite artists, and stream your music to your devices and the Web.
To celebrate the launch of Google Music, T-Mobile will offer millions of T-Mobile customers using smartphones and tablets running on Android 2.2 and above exclusive free Google Music content from featured artists including Drake, Maroon 5, Busta Ryhmes, and others.
Each week through the end of the year, T-Mobile will introduce new, free tracks via the Android Market Music Store – look for the T-Mobile Free Tracks section to find them. Free content for T-Mobile customers will also be shareable with friends via Google+.
Additional details on today’s news along with stats on the increase we have seen for streaming music on 4G devices among our customers is available on T-Mobile’s blog. As reference, I’m attaching a screenshot of the T-Mobile Galaxy S II device with Google Music.
