The folks over at XDA-developers have managed to get Google’s upcoming Music Sync service working on their rooted Android phones. After getting their hands on the Honeycomb music player and replacing the default player found on their phones, they’ve managed to get the feature working. They’ve noted that this isn’t the version of the music player that comes with the Motorola Xoom, but the one that was demonstrated at the Google’s Developer conference back in May 2010 when the app was first announced. When the sync is run, all the music on the user’s phone is uploaded somewhere on the internet (nobody knows at the moment), and the music can then be deleted from the device as the music can be streamed from anywhere as long as there’s an internet connection. It’s not the music streaming service everybody initially thought it was, but it looks like Google has changed their plans if Google Music (that is slated to arrive this year) turns out to be different. Anyway, if you have a good working knowledge of your Android phone and know what you’re getting yourself into, you can head over to XDA-developers to get your hands on the Honeycomb music player.
