Google Play Music Scan and Match Service is Drawing off Explicit Lyrics

By: Gizbot Bureau

From just scanning and matching music files the Scan and Match service of Google music has shifted to mixing and replacing music. According to the latest reports coming in from TheVerge, Google's Scan and Match is mixing up different versions of songs and replacing the explicit songs with "clean" edited versions and vice-versa.

The new Scan and Match free service was launched by Google in par with the Apple's iTunes match which costs up to $25 (Rs.1400 approx) a year. The service scans the music library of the user and searches the Google's server to match songs.

This scan and match feature from Google means that users now do not require to upload their favorite music to the cloud drive. These songs can be streamed over the web without even uploading music files.

Users feel it is worthwhile until songs are matched with their identical ones in the library. But the concern now is that Google is censoring the music and the versions are swapped between clean and explicit ones.

A similar problem of mixing the songs was reported when Apple launched its iTunes Match. Google Music was launched officially in November 2011 and its Scan-and-match service was launched subsequently.

Google's service is free, until the user's library exceeds 20,000 songs which is more than what Apple iTunes and Amazon Cloud player offer. Google's service is a good bargain compared to Apple's iTunes match or Amazon Cloud player except for the fact that it mixes explicit lyrics with the clean ones. It is likely to be a bug that Google will hopefully iron out soon.
