I just fired up my Google Music account this afternoon and this is what I found:
All 7,861 songs are gone. I hope they come back. Apparently, I’m not the only one this is happening to.
Update – all my music has returned sometime overnight.

Like said.. I don’t understand the benefits of cloud streaming. Cloud settings and recommendations, yes. But streaming?

Mine went away for a while this morning. Not sure how long. At least a half hour, but then they came back. A couple of other glitches…when playing back an album that the tracks blend from one to another, there is a small pause in between. Itunes had that problem for a while in the beginning too. The uploading process is really tortuous. And I can’t figure out the logic behind what it uploads and why. It would be nice to choose what you upload. I don’t really need my wife’s favorite Xmas music up in the cloud.

I hope your songs come back. :(
On a side note, do your smart playlists sync? All my regular playlists from iTunes are syncing over nicely, but none of my smart playlists are.

jack – none of my itunes playlists sync’d

jack– my normal playlists synced but not my smart playlists.
paul– my account is still ok — all my songs are still there.

Everything here seems to be normal. My uploads have stopped, however. The pitfalls of being part of a ‘Beta’ service I guess.

What kind of bitrate does Google Music stream at? Tolerable?

Music Beta plays files at a max bit rate of around 320 kilobytes per second
