Has anyone been able to make this work with unrooted Droid1? If so, how did you do it?
works with my rooted Incredible.
You are given an invite and then upload the music. Download Music onto your phone, have it sync to your account, and there ya go.
Got the invite several days ago, uploaded music, downloaded the app, but all that is there is what was already on my phone and sync is on for my gmail account. On 0s 2.2.2 Thanks for your reply, any other ideas?
i had issues with mine to start check the settings in the app
Why would it be any different with a rooted device? Rooted or not, you have to upload music and use the Google Music app on your device.
What is the point of having the music in the cloud when it is already on the phone? I realize some extremely small percentage of owners may have over 16 Gb of music, but what does this do for the vast majority whose music fits nicely on their phone, no cloud connection necessary?
The "new" MUSIC app will not work (AFAIK) with an unrooted droid_og. The stock music app will not let it install, as the stock app is a system app and the new app would be a market install. I could not get it to work on my rooted droid (CM7) until I froze the stock app. Just got my invite on Saturday and am uploading music now.
No need to have it on your phone...that's the whole point and the only point.
Instead of having 10GB of songs on your phone, you now have it in the cloud, freeing up your SD card space.
Another benefit is that you have your entire music collection available to stream wherever you have a web browser, not just through your phone.
Ok, I get the value of streaming through the browser. I still have over 8Gb free on my sd card and can play any of my music whether or not I'm connected. Given the vagaries of a cloud connection I know I would never use it with my phone. The browser streaming has value, though.
The streaming to my original Droid has been remarkably reliable, and I couldn't be happier. The "value" proposition is going to be dependent on your situation. Those with huge libraries (I have 70gigs/10,000+ songs) are likely to be much more enticed by this.
Also, having my entire collection available to me so I can listen to it in the car via Bluetooth is just fantastic.
I have over 19,000 songs on my home PC and it's great being able to access them anywhere. I have a TBolt and with 4G on there is no lag either.
This is false, it works just fine on my stock OG Droid.
Music Manager still doesn't support Linux!
I know right. I'm sick of waiting.
tappin and a talkin
I'm having problems with this as well--phone is rooted, DC ROM Beta v9, supposedly set to use my Google account (have to accept a permissions setting when first using the app), but all I see is the music that was already there. I'd love to offload much of that and free up some space, but no apparent way to do it--no Settings menu.
Do I need to have the Music Manager installed on my (a) PC to get this working? The invite came today, but I'm behind a corporate firewall and apparently can't install the Manager to this PC. Maybe the device app won't recognize the invite until that's done?
You have to upload from a PC.
After you do that you may have to uninstall/ reinstall to get it to take.
Sent from my A855.
When I downloaded the music beta app while flashed to GPA15, it installed it side-by-side with the old music app. When I flashed to an OTA image, it wouldn't install it til I uninstalled (with TiBU) the old music app.
That did work, thanks. (Though Google could make that a little more explicit.)
How does one "freeze" the stock music app?
