    We didn’t see this one coming. Well ahead of any official announcement of any kind, the folks at XDA have figured out a way to use the new cloud music service Google introduced last year at Google I/O.
    For those who don’t know, the service allows you to sync your music to Google’s servers and will allow you to stream that music on your device, effectively getting rid of the need to install music to your SD card.
    It’s not unlike some third party services already out. This service was to be built into Android at some point, but Google never gave us a timeline when they initially announced it. The hack requires the music player found in Android 3.0 and a rooted device. You can find more information at this XDA thread.
