During today's Google I/O conference, mobile entertainment provider mSpot, Inc. will debut mSpot, a new free music cloud service that offers instant access to your entire music collection synced across smartphones and PCs/Macs. The service enables you to quickly upload your music (20 GB limit apply) into the mSpot Cloud from where you can start listening to it from popular desktop browsers and Android phones immediately. The service includes a smart application that operates in the background of your computer managing the upload and day-to-day syncing of your music library. In addition, it can upload playlists, cover art, ratings and song information you may have entered using iTunes or Windows Media Player.
The application manages your music for you, making automatic updates whenever changes occur in your library, and across different connected devices. For today's Google I/O conference, mSpot has released an Android client which is said to work on any Android smartphone, running Android 2.1 or better. However, at the moment it's an invitation-only private Beta, offered at Google I/O conference. The public availability of the service is said to begin in June, 2010.
UPDATE: mSpot just informed its Beta users that, due to unexpected demand this morning, it ran into some technical difficulties so that current users may be experiencing slow uploads to and service and slowness while listening to their uploaded music. mSpot says that it's now in the process of adding more capacity and therefore users, who are running the service, now may be experiencing more errors as the serive is temporarily shut down in order to add more capacity.
