The wait is finally over - Google Play Music is coming to (some of) Europe on 13th November, with music matching (exclusively to Europe first!) too!

At launch Google Play Music will be available in the UK, France, Germany and Italy. Users will be able to purchase music from the Google Play Store as well as uploading 20,000 songs for free. WIth the launch of the new matching feature, Google will scan your music collection and any song matched against the Google Play catalog will be automatically added to your online library without needing to upload it, saving you time.

Although this will only be available in Europe at launch, it will be added to the US service soon after.

This will all be free 'free storage of your music, free matching, free syncing across your devices and free listening.' YES!

The icing on the cake is that Google has announced that Warner Music Group will now be adding their full music catalog with new songs coming each day - Google is now working with all of the major record labels globally. :)

I always thought Europe was bigger than just 4 countries... It gets pretty old the way the likes of Ireland/etc get totally overlooked yet again...

Is there likely to be an issue for those who used a proxy to access Google Music in the UK previously?

Yeah. Available in Europe, but not in THIS Europe... only in yours :)
Nice. I really wonder when manufacturers will start treating the EU as a single entity.

This could be a big steal for Google. iTunes Match is annoying in that it frequently refuses to match or upload one song on an album, meaning that effectively the whole album is broken. I've lost count of how many times I've found myself not listening to the song I expected because apple can't fix their service. I would completely switch to google if it works.

OK I can understand about my country... but also no Scandinavians... pff It even starts itching to use some well known alternate bays... :ph34r:

The second thing... how really well developed broadband is in those OLD countries for such service... and how much it adds additional costs...(aiming at Germany and Italy) it is not like we youngsters have speed of 100Mb+ for 20$ monthly without limits around everywhere we live in the turf.

This sucks big time, just like paid apps used to. I just don't understand why not the whole Europe. Feels like my money is not good enough for them.

Well, I'll just use "alternative" markets until available in my country, just like I did with paid apps, until it's available.

After thinking about it perhaps I won't need to do anything - I assume Google use clever content delivery services so perhaps even though I/we tricked Google into allowing us
to use Google Music from the UK the actual Music I uploaded will be 'close' to me and the matching just reduces bandwidth for me and them when uploading.

Hmmm my comments seems to have not gone through.

Anyhow does anyone know what happens to those of us Yurpuns who signed up via a proxy now that G-Music has launched here in blighty?
