Get an Invitation to the Google Music Beta

THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED

NOTE: AS ONE OF OUR READERS HAS POINTED OUT, GOOGLE MUSIC IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE IN THE U.S. ONLY

While Spotify is the music service that is getting all of the press these days, Google’s own music service is up and running. In typical Google fashion, Google Music is currently in beta. Google Music is not a subscription service, and doesn’t offer a catalog of music. Instead, it is a free service to which you upload the songs that you already own. You can then stream them to a web browser, or to the free Android app. The app also caches music, to support offline play. We’ve got 4 invitations to give away. Read on for details on how to score one.

To submit your name to get one of the four invites, take these two steps:

1. Follow 40Tech on Twitter, or Like 40Tech on Facebook; AND

2. Post a comment in this thread, telling us that you want an invite, and confirming that you followed us on Twitter or Facebook.

You can skip step 1 if you’re already following us. When you enter, make sure you enter your email address in the comment form (the address won’t get posted publicly), so that we can contact you if you win. On Sunday (Clarification: August 21), I’ll randomly select four entries, and send out the invitations.

    • Just noticed that Google Music Beta invites are only for users in the United States. Since you were nice enough to set me up with an invite to Google+ a few weeks ago, I tried to help out Vivian with a Google Music Beta invite but since she’s in Canada, it was a no-go.

      • When do you guys think it would be available for the rest of the world. I really love Google services and Google Music seems like an very serious and interesting concept.

    • Hi Andrea. The contest has been closed for a while, but Google Music is now available to everyone in the U.S. I’m going to close comments on this post so there is no confusion.
