Google Music and Windows 8
Hey, I gave Xbox Music on Windows 8 a try and I found it pretty much useless; IMO.
I've used Google Music since pretty much it was available. I don't know why everyone doesn't use it, it's quite amazing that it lets you access your music library from any device anywhere you are... for free.
Xbox Music has a flaw where it won't let you import music stored on a NAS device (A limitation of Windows 8). So it instantly becomes useless to anyone with a large MP3 collection that they have on a NAS.
There are a bunch of 3rd party Google music apps that will let you access your library through the the Windows 8 interface, instead of having to use the web browser. My favorite is called "gMusicW". The interface is nice and it seems to work 100% for what i need it to.
Just wanted to give anyone with a Win8 PC and Google music a heads up.
I now have a Google Music App for my Phone, and all my computers and then if I'm on someone else's device I can access everything though the web app. Pretty awesome really.
