Does Google Music match my music with it's own database? A lot of Sources are claiming that, however it seems to just upload my Music (ie: The tags aren't updated)

What is right?

Google Music recently launched in Europe and one of the claimed features is "scan and match".

According to The Verge, this is Europe-only for now and, at least during their checks, only seems to be working in the UK.

So, depending where you are, the answer to your question is: not yet, but soon.

Update: This has gone live in the United States.

I live in Germany so this is probably the problem. Edit: To Clarify: Matching just works in the UK? Google Music is working fine here in Germany (it just don't seem to match) – silent_cookie Nov 17 '12 at 15:31
That's what The Verge says. I live in the U.S. so I can't confirm anything. I expect it'll get rectified within a few weeks. – Al E. Nov 18 '12 at 2:25
