Google Music Matching Feature Now Available For U.S. Users

Last month, Google got around to launching Google Music in Europe. They also gave Europeans an exclusive treat: a new song matching feature. Similar to Apple’s music match feature, Google scans a user’s music collection, matches it up against their online library, and quickly adds any matches via the cloud for a speedier upload process.

Why am I talking about this if it happened over a month ago? Well, because that same matching service is now available here in the U.S.

Starting today, U.S. users will enjoy the convenience of having their stored music matched up against Google’s online library and instantly added to their Google Music for later streaming of up to 320 kbps. Best of all — the service is free!

Google Music is shaping up to be an excellent option. With the recently added gapless playback, the newly expanded selection of music, and the now available matching feature, it’s no wonder our friends up in Canada are crying foul.

Show Canada some love, would ya!?
