It’s been a year now since Google launched Google Music in the U.S. Perhaps it’s time for the Mountain View-based technology giant to introduce a new feature that would wow its fans. Google previously made a promise to launch a “scan and match” feature that’s similar to what Amazon and Apple are offering. The major selling point though is that it’s free and that it can store over 20,000 tracks.
When Google Music launched this week in the U.K. as well in Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, users were baffled because the scan and match feature that Google promised appears to be working on their end. As noted by The Verge, scan and watch wasn’t written on the list of features on the Google Music website, yet the services seems to be active. Their assumption was proven to be true when Ben Kersey of The Verge found out that the songs from his computer had been matched and replicated on Google Music.
