Google's been teasing cloud-based music features in Android
since its I/O conference last year, and the recent leak
of a revamped first-party Music app suggests that the plans haven't evaporated into thin air. Here's the latest tidbit: GizmoFusion
claims that this screen shot comes from a device running Gingerbread
, clearly showing "Music" as one of the accounts configured in Android's settings, which suggests that the system will be pretty deeply-integrated to sync your tracks just as it would your Twitter updates, your Facebook friends, or your calendar entries. Note that we don't have any new evidence beyond this one shot -- and we need to take GizmoFusion
's word that this is a Gingerbread device -- but we're wondering if maybe this isn't one of the new features in that Android 2.4
build we've been hearing a lot about lately.
