Finally I received a Google music invite, which I was able to quickly set up right from my BlackBerry browser by following the link on the e-mail invite. The set up process is simple, and it actually lets you pick Genres on the set up process if you want to add the free sample’s Google offers you. There is not that many songs in the samples but to test it I decided to add those. To the right you have lists to choose from that allows you to pick what you want to listen to including songs, Artists, Albums, Genres. You can listen to auto playlist by thumbs up, recently added, and free songs.
Another playlist option is the instant mixes this option allows you to select one song and then Google creates a playlist of 25 random songs.
The last option towards the bottom allows you to create a playlist by giving it a name and simply drag and drop from current songs into the playlist of your choice within the browser.
BlackBerry & PlayBook Browser:
So I decided to test how it works on the BlackBerry browser and to my surprise it works just as good as it does on my PC or the BlackBerry PlayBook browser. If you do want to have a good stream it needs to be over 3G or Wi-Fi. Depending on how good your connection is, you should have no problem streaming music.
Navigating: To my surprise navigating through playlist is simple and works just as good on the BlackBerry browser. To play a song or to bring up a menu for the songs you have to click on a small downward arrow next to the number telling you time frame of the song. When you click on a song you can navigate around the music library without worrying the song will pause, you have a bar at the bottom of the browser that tells you which song is playing. The bar stays put allowing you to change songs, shuffle, pause or stop playing music.
You can also rate songs by using the thumbs up or thumbs down option on the right side of the songs profile.
I really like way Google designed the music library is simple and gets the job done. I did not have another device to test it on, but if you have an invite let us know how it works on your device.
