Google finally pushes out its cloud-based music service, US only, however.

Well, there you have it folks. After an initial announcement at last year’s Google I/O conference, and staying alive only in rumors thereafter, Google has finally announced its cloud-based music service during it’s annual conference today.

The service is called Google Music, and is currently available only via invitation. The service will allow users to upload up to 20, 000 music tracks, and will be free as long as it is in beta. The search giant plans to attach a service fee, though it hasn’t announced a figure a yet.

Google Music allows users to access music files even if their offline, and promises playlists sync, iTunes support, among other features. The service is currently only limited to the USA.

The Apple-like official website is up and running, have a look.
