Is Google Getting Ready to Allow you to add songs to Play Music via your Browser?


It appears that Google could be getting ready to allow you to upload your songs via your browser. That in itself is a long overdue, as many Google Music users have found the desktop client still as a  dated interface and slow upload speeds that leaves a lot to be desired against many other Google services that have been updated over the last couple of weeks..

Thankfully it sounds like we won’t have to put up with that for much longer. Someone going by the name of Florian K. went through the Google Play Music source code one day, and happened to find the following string not being used on the site itself:

Drag songs or folders here to add music to your library. Or, if you prefer, select from your computer


Could this mean that Google is readying a feature that will allow you to upload your music using a web browser instead of a desktop client. While the desktop client may be more suitable for large uploads, having a browser alternative would allow Google to have one consistent interface for uploading music no matter which platform you’re on.

There’s no indication as to when they’ll look to introduce these new features, but if they’re reading the website’s source code we can’t imagine it’ll take long to see them go live.
