Today brings more good news for Google TV owners with the release of the cloud-powered Google Music app. As Jurek Foryciarz, Product Manager of Google TV puts it:
The app syncs with your Google Music account in the cloud, so there is no need to stream from a computer or download songs to the TV. Simply download the Google Music app for Google TV from Android Market, login with your account, and enjoy your entire music library through your HDTV and home theater system.
Google Music for Google TV plays in the background while you enjoy other apps on your Google TV. You can add a custom soundtrack to slideshows from the Photos app, you can enjoy your favorite tunes while surfing the web, or you can just add some mood music while you peruse the latest news headlines, all from the comfort of your couch.
Google TV has been widely criticized since its launch as being a poorly featured and confusing product. It is now a far more compelling living room solution thanks to a recent update to bring Android Market access and a greatly improved UI. Yesterday we saw Google Music officially leave beta and become open to everyone in America, and the Google TV team has wasted no time in bringing music service to the platform. My holiday shopping decisions are now that much harder.
