It's a far cry from the darling that was Google Play Music, but it's...adequate enough, and the only streaming service I'd entertain paying for. The interface is admittedly pretty poor and it lacks the dedicated, native library sync applications that Google Play Music had, opting instead for a web upload interface, but that works well enough provided you don't dump thousands of files into it at a time. Tagging them once they're there in akin to torture though, so handle that locally pre-upload. There was a time I used to crow from the rooftops about services from Google...but the bloom has long been off that rose. At this point I simply feel like if you have to dance with the devil, best to dance with the devil that "brung ya." How's that for mixed metaphors? See More
Peter J. Mello's Experience
Integration with a Sonos account is seamless for both free accounts and subscribers, and songs can be played on one speaker or any grouping of them, or even multiple different songs on different speakers simultaneously. The API promises to limit only the most egregious of users and is policed very loosely. See More
All accounts are free to upload as much music to the service as they wish, it automatically deduplicates the files using audio analysis and ID3 tags. The files are transcoded down to a bitrate of 128k for free accounts but kept in their original encoding for subscribers for playback as such or transcoded on-the-fly to any other bitrate selected to accommodate the bandwidth available.
