HTC Amaze 4G users should be expecting an over-the-air update to roll out soon, according to T-Mobile's support documentation. The update carries software build 1.43.531.3 (still Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread), adding IMS WiFi calling, Google Music compatibility, and various stability/functionality enhancements.

Users can check for the update manually by hitting Menu > About Phone > HTC Software Updates > Check. Otherwise, you have only to sit back and wait for an OTA notification before you can begin enjoying WiFi calling on your Amaze 4G.

Wow.

I don't know what is up with Google and web design today, but hot on the heels of the Android.com revamp comes... this.

The Google Music Tour.

google-music-intro

I spent the first 5 minutes just hovering over the little colored lines, because the sound is just so cool. Each line plays a musical note; it feels like you're trying to call down the spaceship from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

If you can ever pry yourself away from the cool little mouse over noises, you can actually start using the website.

Google Music support was just announced for the Android Market. You can preview and buy music right on your phone! Right now you are probably asking "How can I get it?!"

Well, normally we would have an APK download for you, but this update is totally server side. Anyone running Market 3.3.11 is ready to use the Music Market. Google is it out to accounts right now. If it doesn't work for you, just have to wait.

Update: The Music section of the Market is now live! (Link). Access to Music in the Android Market (on-device) will be rolling out over the next few days on the server side (there is no new version of the Market to get the Music section). A new version of the Music app is out as well, check it out here.

Update 2: Here's the full video of the Google Music event held in Los Angeles today (if the embedded timecode doesn't work, skip to 29m30s for the start of the event):

Just minutes ago, Google announced the launch of the long-awaited Google Music storefront.

Google Music's Music Store is ready to rise from the ashes. The New York Times is claiming Google and the record companies are close to a deal to make the music store a reality. Finally, we will be afforded the privilege of paying the record companies for their music.

If you don't remember, Google Music was originally slated to launch with a music store when it came out 5 months ago, but the deals fell through.

Oh, do we have a story for you. It's a story of mystery, intrigue, and a lost prototype Nexus Prime. Yes, a lost Nexus Prime. Or Galaxy Nexus - whatever it'll end up being called.

Our story begins like any other -- with a person. Not just any person, though -- this person is special. They go by the name of Geek Vundotra, and they work for Verizon. Geek is a Verizon engineer who happens to be carrying a very special phone.

Google Music beta, previously available by invitation only from Google, is opening up its doors a bit starting today with the rollout of invite capabilities.

There aren't many yet - I and everyone else I've seen who have gotten invites, received 2 to hand out, so if you're already a member, log into your Music account, check how many you were granted, and start a bidding war among your friends (fall back to a sword duel in case of disputes).

Linux users who were invited to the Google Music Beta program back when it first launched quickly realized that the service offered little value to them. Why? Because, at the time, there was no native way to upload music. Today, after two-and-a-half-months, Google finally released an uploader designed just for Linux.

The uploader essentially works just like the Windows version, with one small tweak: OGG support. OGG files will automatically be transcoded to 320kbps MP3 files, which will inevitably make the already painfully slow uploading process last even longer -- but hey, at least you can finally use that beta invite, right?

When Google announced its highly anticipated Music beta service at I/O last week, we were told that, aside from I/O attendees, Verizon XOOM owners would be among the first to get to use the service. Holding true to that, Google has officially started sending out the invites this morning.

As far as we know, this is exclusive to Verizon customers right now, with no word when owners of other models (or other devices) can expect to get the invite (aside from attendees with their Galaxy Tab 10.1's).

We got a tip this morning for the official URL for Google Music, and we've been randomly checking it (read: mashing F5 constantly) since then. A few minutes ago, something amazing happened - it went live. Hit the link, request your invite, and patiently wait for it! GO!

Although this just went up, we can pull out a few obvious facts right off the bat:

  • Honeycomb and Gingerbread will be supported
  • At least based on what's shown in the images above, Music doesn't appear to be a store.
