We've had leaked betas of Google's Music 3.0 app for Android for what seems like time eternal now, but Google has finally chosen to make the app public. At least part of it, that is. It sports the same interface as the beta we've all come to know (and love?), but lacks one key feature, mysteriously: a settings menu. That's probably owing to the fact that the previous betas we've seen all contained sync (Google Music) options in the settings menu, and unless you're a beta-invitee (don't worry, none of us have gotten ours yet, either), these options will presumably remain hidden and otherwise inaccessible.

You can grab it on the market now (it will not show up as an update!).

    I find it interesting that as soon as I installed this and played a few tracks, my "Syncing" icon in the notification bar is constantly on, as well as my 3G traffic indicator.

    Hmm.....

    Force closes on G2 running the new Sense 3.0. I am guessing it's is an issue with Sense in general not just 3.0. If anyone gets working on a Sense device please post how. Thanks.

    Aah, too bad. It can't be installed on my device. Probably because it's not working outside of the US.
    Will it be possible with the .apk?

    Installed it on my G2 and now I have two Music apps listed. It won't let me delete the old one. Since they both have the same name and icon it's confusing keeping them straight.
