    Same here, got my invite yesterday and let uploads run all night. I'm currently half way through uploading my entire 60gb collection.

    There's just one thing I noticed and researched to confirm... it converts .flac into a 320k mp3. Not that big of a deal and completely understandable... imagine all the storage that would be required if they stored .flac files. Just a single album can be 1 to 2gb in .flac

    I would imagine it will be like gmail, X gb free and you can pay for more.

    Is anyone else thats received the beta having problems getting it to run on their phones? I have it on my Moto Droid and its not showing up any of my songs. My phone is also rooted not sure if thats the problem. If any of you have had any problems how did you fix it? Ive also updated the app, uninstalled updates, rebooted, and etc.... still no luck.

    I was having the same issue on my rooted Moto Droid. I completely uninstalled the Music app and installed it again, and that seemed to do the trick. I also noticed when I first installed it that the "Settings" option was nowhere to be found. After the uninstall/install that came back as well.

    People had similar disbelief when gmail first showed up offering massive amounts of storage.

    It's just boilerplate.

    This fixed on my Droid 2 as well. Didn't need to do anything for my Acer tablet.

    Only problem is the desktop app having problems with a couple of songs.

    It's not downloading right I don't think... For three days I've been hovering around 300 of 3,000 songs... I don't know if it goes into standby or what the issue is, but I'm already bored with fiddling with it. I have a 160GB pod, so I'm not overly concerned.

    Just got mine today,
    You're Invited!

    Welcome to Music Beta, a new service from Google that lets you store your personal collection online and access it instantly without the hassle of wires or syncing.

    • Enjoy your music anywhere — listen on any web browser or your smartphone or tablet running Android 2.2 or higher.
    • Save your favorite albums, artists, and playlists on your device so you can keep listening even when you’re not connected.
    • Create your own custom playlists or build them automatically from a single song.
    I am very interested to how it works on my music collection as I have 57,000 files on 189GB

    I will post after i load it all

    SO after about 10 minutes of uploading it says 6 of about 38,779 added
    looks like this is gonna run for awhile :)
