If you are considering uploading your music collection to Google Music, you may want to hold off for a short while because it may be quite a bit easier in the not to distant future. Google has announced a new music matching feature.

“We’re also launching our new matching feature to streamline the process of uploading your personal music to Google Play. We’ll scan your music collection and any song we match against the Google Play catalog will be automatically added to your online library without needing to upload it, saving you time.”

Music matching will be available for those in the US and Europe. Those in Europe will have the feature when Google Music launches on November 13 and those in the US will have it “soon after.” Touching back on the European availability, this means those in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain will be able to purchase music from the Google Play store and add up to 20,000 songs for playback using a web browser of Android device.

Google has also announced movie purchasing for those in the UK, France, Spain and Australia beginning today, October 29. Finally, Google has partnered with Time and Warner Music Group. This means magazines such as InStyle, PEOPLE, TIME as well as the full music catalog from Warner.
