Google I/O conference: Introducing Google Music beta Google has just launched their oft-delayed Google Music service in beta, live now at music.google.com.
You can head over now to request an invitation using your Gmail account.

For the service, you can upload up to 20,000 tracks to the cloud and stream the music from any computer or Android device.

The service will initially be free, and currently only for U.S. users.

For those with Honeycomb tablets, the service uses CoverFlow-esque browsing, and you can "Genius" tracks using InstantMix, which will then create a 25-song playlist of similar music.

Google adds that if you lose Internet, "the songs you've recently played will automatically be available offline."
