There hasn’t been much waves by Google Music these days, much like Google+ there was a frenzy of news surrounding Google’s new music service, but it seems to have died down a bit. Perhaps in an attempt to bring the focus back onto their music service, Google has launched a new music blog service in which Tim Quirk, head of music programming, has described it as “Music Beta’s cousin”.
The new music blog service is called Magnifier and what it offers users is a free song every day for download. The songs can be from either emerging acts or established ones as the songs are handpicked by the staff on Magnifier. It will also offer videos and interviews which can also be added to the user’s cloud library, assuming that they own a Google Music Beta account.
It’s a little odd that the songs are handpicked as opposed to being generated based on what the user searches for, but I guess if you like being adventurous with your music and that there are no particular genres you are attached to, Magnifier might just be the site you could go to for music recommendations.
