Even if you're not paying for All Access or YouTube Music Key, Google Play can be a useful way to stream your personal music collection. With its free "locker" service, you can store thousands of tunes online and stream them from the web, as well as your favorite Android and iOS devices. By keeping them in the cloud, they're quickly accessible across a range of hardware and won't clog up your precious onboard storage. Until now Google has set a limit of 20,000 tracks per user, but today it's raising that amount to 50,000. It's a significant increase, and one that might appeal if you have a mammoth music library full of EPs, remixes and B-sides that aren't available from the major streaming services.
