Google Introduces New Music Service

google-play-music

Google Play Music has launched a new service which will choose music for its users to listen to based on their moods.

The new service will use information such as your location and what you are doing at a given time to make a determination as to what music to play.

Google lead product manager Elias Roman stated in a blog post, “Google Play Music uses machine learning to figure out what music you like and then mixes in signals like location, activity, and the weather along with hand-picked playlists to personalize music for wherever you are and whenever you want tunes.”

Lets say that you have just entered the gym. Google will play your workout music for you. Sitting down to work — Google will play whatever it is that you usually like to listen to automatically so that a user will not need to go searching for songs.

The new service also comes with a new customized home screen.

Convenience aside, could this be just another step in the transformation of Google into Big Brother?

How much personal information do we really want a major corporation to have about ourselves?

Well we probably need not worry when it comes to music. But if Google starts to tell you things like “don’t eat that piece of cake, you’re on a diet, ” or “get off the couch already and exercise” even when your smart phone is turned off — Panic!
