Google unveiled its long-awaited Chrome OS, notebook and Web store today and already we’re itching to see what life lived entirely in the cloud is like – not that we’re far off as it is. While we don’t have our hands on a Chrome OS notebook quite yet, if we did, MOG would be one of the first apps we would install.
MOG has announced a beta release of its music player for the Chrome Web store and we have to admit, we’re excited to see one of our favorite cloud-based music players hit the shelves.
Like many players of its kind, MOG offers an all-you-can-stream selection of music for a small monthly fee – in this case, more than 10 million songs for $5 a month. It streams music at 320 kbps and offers users the ability to share playlists, stream entire albums and download music for offline listening.
“HTML5 is the future of browser-based technology, and users will love the experience that our new simplified and slick player offers,” said David Hyman, founder and CEO of MOG in the company’s release. “”Users will continue to enjoy the same unlimited access to all the music they want with the added bonus of blazing fast delivery, and an integrated discovery and playback experience vs. a separate pop-out MOG player.”
Of course, the app isn’t only for Chrome notebooks. If you’re using the Chrome browser, you can give the new MOG app a try, and here’s how:
1. Download the developer channel of Google Chrome at http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?extra=devchannel
2. Go to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jgljcanfdcmdnncaneopdlcgjlkgpenj
3. Click the Install button
The app is open to both new and existing subscribers. User feedback on this 1.0 release is highly encouraged as MOG continues to update and make improvements to the app.
We don’t know about you, but we’re going to give it a shot right now.
