Google recently announced on Twitter that a new mobile web app, optimized for iOS4 devices, is now available. If you have a Music Beta account, just point your Safari browser on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad to music.google.com to try it out.
Once you log into your Google account, you will be prompted with this alert box:
Select “Increase” to allow it to store a cache version of your music on your device. Your playlist would look somewhat like this:
The user interface is quite beautiful, although the color scheme is much darker than what we’re used to in other Google products. Scroll the navigation on top to sort music by Artists, Albums, Song titles, Playlists, or Genre. Select a song to play. Even if you close Safari, the music will still play in the background. In addition, you can also control it using the built-in music controls on iOS just like any other audio source.
The main and only function of this app is to play your music. There is no option to upload more songs, or edit their information. You would have to do that through the desktop web version of the Music Beta.
If you have an account/invite to the service, you can view the new web app from your iOS device by going to music.google.com.
