Information on this is understandably thin on the ground. However, it appears that it is only the registration process that checks your country of origin. If you use a proxy to obtain an invitation code you should be able to link that with your current Google Account. However, as the information is pretty sketchy at the moment I would use caution if you ...

Right-click within the selection and select 'Edit Info' from the pop-up menu. On the cover art icon, click the X to delete the cover art from all your songs. Removing just the bad album art: ...

There is no option to enable gapless playback in the web player. I contacted Google support about the matter and got this response: Their is no option for this on the web player, it should be automatic. The person responding proceeded to refer to it as: gape less playback so I don't know if he or she actually has any idea what I'm talking ...

If you modify the music file - retagging, changing the album art, etc, Google Music will update the existing file. I thought that if you changed the name of the file Google Music will upload a new copy of the file as, as far as Google is concerned, it's a new file. However, that appears not to be the case and the identity of the file is derived from it's ...

You can Ctrl + click (on Windows) or Cmd + click (on Mac OS X) to select multiple files, then click on the menu triangle next to any song title and select Edit song info (x).

This has been a problem with Google music for a while, even before All Access. I purchased what appeared to be an album by the band LUSH but was some orchestral compilation or something. Since I bought it, there was a way to complain and reverse the purchase, but the problem with mixing bands continued. I just now searched for LUSH and it looks like the two ...

If you scroll down a bit at the Google Play (Music) Store, you'll see a big banner for free music. Here's what it looks like for me today: Click the banner and you'll get a list of available songs. I see about a dozen. They change fairly regularly. Below the banner is also the "Free song of the day". I am in the U.S. If you are in another country this ...

ChrisF's answer is mostly correct, but I think it has a subtle error: If you change the name of the file Google Music will upload a new copy of the file as, as far as Google is concerned, it's a new file. I don't think this is entirely true. When the Music Manager scans a file, it generates a hash of it (you can find this in the Music Manager local ...

That's exactly what happened to me today: My free trial finished and I lost all my All-Access tracks from my Library and Playlists. When I called Google's Support they told me the tracks would re-appear whenever I paid the monthly fee, so I did it and fortunately it worked! Still I don't know how to distinguish between All-Access and Purchased/Uploaded ...

I use MumbleBee's blog to locate free music offered on Google Play. Sometimes, I'm not able to visit the Google Play music store every day so this blog catches me up on missed (free) tunes with a direct link to the song. Of course, some of the tunes are free for a limited time. So I wouldn't wait too long before checking back. URL: ...

The closest thing I can find is a submenu on the support site that asks for support about listening to music on Google Play on the web: https://support.google.com/googleplay/#contact=1&ts=3006676,3013991,3039144 I've contacted Google Support using this link, and if they share anything with me that is helpful, I'll share it here. EDIT: I received a ...

To update your ID3 tags on Play, you will need to set the codepage for your local MP3's first and then use something other than Windows Media Player to edit the tags in some way. A batch-edit tool might do the trick, and would make it easy to reverse the change afterward if needed. Add something to a field that you don't use, and then strip that change back ...

It looks like this will be happening automatically over time. Here's the relevant portion of the Google Help page on the feature. If you’re a longtime Google Play Music user, you don’t need to re-upload your files to have them matched. In the next few months, we'll automatically match what we can of your existing library.

No, there is no limit, but Albums may end up split or joined based on information in the Track Info and Album Info. Here is an example of multiple albums merged into one: If you note, there are 52 tracks in the album and there are also a number of duplicate track numbers, as well as multiple artists. This can be further explained by looking at the Album ...

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 am sorry to say so, but what you are asking for is clearly not possible. It is a great privacy, piracy breach and not only Google but all the companies that I know of, do not allow transfer of any kind of digital data from one account to another.

Not yet. You can visit google.com/takeout to see the services which Google currently lets you export your data from. You can also visit the "Data Liberation" website to see Google projects where data can partially be exported. However, neither of those list Google Music at all, and a random comment says it doesn't work yet, so the evidence is that no, you ...
