Google Play Music adds the ability to upload songs directly from your browser

GPlay_MusicFeatureDragDrop_v01_r03

One of the great things about Google Play Music is the ability to upload your existing music collection for easy access from the cloud. Unfortunately, getting your music library uploaded from your PC to the web can actually be a bit of a chore since you first need to download the Music Manager app in order to do it.

What if there was an easier web-based drag-and-drop solution? Thankfully, there is. The Google Play team officially announced on their G+ page that they have added a new way to upload music via the Chrome browser. The feature is currently found in the labs section of Play Music, meaning that it is still an experimental offering.

After you enable the labs feature, you simply drag your files over to an open Google Music tab and it will prompt you to download a special Chrome app that makes the magic happen. In addition to dragging over files manually, you can also set Google Play Music to automatically upload music as you add it to specific files on your PC, such as the “Music” folder.

As if this wasn’t enough, the experimental lab feature even brings a nifty little mini-player app that shows up in the Chrome apps launcher. The mini-player makes it easy to skip, pause and go forward or backward through your entire music library.

For Chromebook owners that previously had no other option for uploading to Play Music, the new lab feature is a very welcome addition. For everyone else? It’s certainly an easy-to-use alternative to the Music Manager desktop app.

How to upload videos directly to YouTube on BlackBerry 10

Honestly, I don’t take a lot of videos on my BlackBerry Z10. I’m more of a picture taking person. For those of you out there though that do take a lot of videos, there’s always the issue of what to do with your videos after you’ve taken them. You can save them to your computer by directly pulling them off or use BlackBerry Link to sync them but of course, you then have to decide what to do with them after that. If you’re more of the sharing type, you’ll likely opt to offload them directly to YouTube to share with friends and family. Luckily, BlackBerry 10 has that feature built right in and it’s all very straight forward to use. Check out the video above to see exactly how it’s all done.

Android-Tablets

The Google Play team posted on its blog an update on tablet app guidelines and screenshots. With the rising popularity of tablets, smaller form factors in particular, it’s just appropriate to give Android developers a better opportunity to showcase their apps to tablet owners. After all, if the developer stories are to be believed, there are a rising number of developers committed on making tablet-optimized apps and seeing huge investment returns.

One useful update is the ability to upload to the Google Play Developer Console multiple screenshots of apps that are running on 7- and 10-inch tablets. When users then check out the app on the Play Store with their tablet, the screenshot that is appropriate for their tablet’s screen size is shown, allowing users to fully confirm before downloading what optimizations have been made that make use of the larger screen real estate.
