Google launch Music Beta mobile web app

Although Google launched a native Android app alongside Music Beta, iOS users have so far been left out in the cold. However Google have now released a new mobile web app, allowing easy access to your cloud library through a browser.


As far as web apps go it’s a pretty fine example too. While it’s clearly aimed at mobiles I tested it on my iPad and although it isn’t tablet optimised it still does the job nicely. Notable touches include the ability to use the OS level music buttons to control playback and multitasking so you can listen to music while using other apps.

In the absence of a native app it’s a close second with the only real omission being the inability to download tracks for offline playback.

Give it a go and let us know what you think in the comments.

    I was waiting eagerly for something like this and got a pleasant surprise this morning when I loaded up Google Music on my iPhone as I got into the car. Though it’s not yet perfect by any means, I found it substantially more responsive and usable than using the desktop website on the iPhone. This is a big, big step forward for Google Music.
