The Google Music beta is still going strong. They recently rolled out a web app to better support the iPhone, and now they are rolling a new music discovery service called Magnifier. This is obviously a move designed to keep feature parity with other music services such as iTunes, Last.FM and the newly announced Facebook Music (expect a review here on MakeUseOf when it is expected to launch on September 22nd).
Magnifier only works if you are currently in the Google Music beta. Right now, it is more like a music blog that links with your Google Music account and allows you to quickly add music from the blog that interests you right into your Google Music library. This means the songs will be available right away on whatever device you listen to your Google music on.
You cannot listen to the music right in the Magnifier page; you first have to add it to your Google Music account and then click play. Once you click play you will be forwarded to the standard Google Music player and your new song will play right from there. This adds an extra layer to listening to songs, but it is free music so you cannot really complain.
As with anything Google Music, this is United States only for the moment. If you would like to request an invite to the Google Music beta head over here.
