Don’t Feel Like Waiting for the Invite? Stand Alone Google Music 3.0 Available Now for Froyo and Up!

As you may have seen from our most recent article, we are following the developments at Google IO up close, and it seems that so are many of our members. If you saw the new Google Music UI and have been itching to get it for the last few hours, XDA member pacoforet has been kind enough to provide you with the fix for this craving of yours. This is a stand alone apk, which should work well with any rom sporting Froyo and up. The UI is simply beautiful and the promise of the cloud service makes it even more appealing.

If you have had a chance of installing this on your device, please leave feedback on the thread. There have been mixed reports from people stating that this force closes on some devices like the SGS I9000, yet working well on the SGS 2. Please leave your thoughts about the app as well.

What thread says:

Standalone .apk of the just minutes ago released Google Music App only available in the US.

Download link at the bottom, as stated by Google, it should work on 2.2+

You can find more information in the application thread.
