AFAIK with Apple Music you also have to upload the songs yourself and your metadata doesn't get updated with the Apple version. Hated that when I upgraded my music to 256kbps m4a.Google took a different approach, offering its users cloud storage for up to 50,000 songs for free. The trade-off is that you have to upload the files and manage the metadata yourself.
That's only for Google's cloud upload feature which lets you add songs from your own collection to your Google Play Music library. That's a free feature to anyone with a Google account, I believe.What does "manage the metadata yourself" mean, you have to manage the album art, track title, artist etc yourself?
If yes, then hell no, I'll stick to Deezer
Hrm... iTunes Match should try and match the songs you upload. It's only if it can't find a match that metadata should be an issue.
Would be nice if someone told my phone. Asking Google voice what song is playing says the service is not available in my country - and I thought that was tied to Google MusicGoogle has launched its digital music store and subscription streaming service in South Africa.
You are referring to iTunes Match. I use Apple Music and it's the same as Deezer or Rdio (which I used before Apple Music).
When you stream it adjusts the quality based on the strength of the connection. Not sure about download quality.So for R50pm you get streaming service and a "matching" service.
With Apple you have to pay the streaming fee and the "matching" fee is extra.
edit: I matched a couple songs with Google Music and downloaded the .mp3 , its 256kbs and not 320kbs, am I missing a setting somewhere for quality?
