In case you are still holding out from using Google Music (which I can understand, since I barely use it myself), now might be a good time to consider using it again.  Google announced a new feature that will be making its way to American users of Google Music.  The feature is known Google Music Match and it simply scans your music folder on your computer and “quickly rebuild it in the cloud – all for free.

Some of you folks may be familiar with this feature as it was rolled out to European Google Music users last month.  At the very least, the Music Match feature is designed to increase upload speeds since Google does the majority of the work by re-creating your music library in the cloud.  I will probably give this a shot in the coming days, since I have yet to fully embrace Google Music as much as I want.

Lastly, the service is completely free and Google Music stores up to 20,000 songs for free in the cloud.
