Just Like iTunes: Google Music Offers Cloud Feature -- That Sanitizes Your Songs
December 26, 2012 at 7:34 AM (PT)
As expected, GOOGLE MUSIC has introduced its own Scan and Match feature that, like iTUNES, swiftly adds music you wish to upload by ignoring your own files -- which would take longer to upload individually -- but instead just identify them and pull them from its catalog in the cloud. But as DROID-LIFE reports, it also possesses a feature -- again, just like iTUNES -- that upsets more than a few users:
Anyone who wants to uploads any of their songs that contain explicit lyrics on either GOOGLE MUSIC and iTUNES will discover that they will only be able to play back "clean" versions of said songs. In other words, they're both censoring your own music whether you like it or not.
As of now, neither service has publicly announced any change in their current policy.
