Android Music 3.0 leaked, available to test now [Update]

According to Business Insider, the blog Tech from 10 has received a l copy of the next generation version of Android's music application. The player is similar to the the version featured in Honeycomb, version 3.0 of Android, and brings a ratings feature from Google's cloud music service, which is expected to launch soon.

Tech from 10 was apparently able to get a hold of the application after Google made a mistake by releasing a developer version of the Android Market. Business Insider says this is the "clearest proof we have of Google's cloud service, which is supposedly being tested with Google employees."

This latest news follows a story featured last month when hackers accidently discovered the new Google music locker which allows users to store their music on Google servers and then stream it to any device, anywhere. Google first started showing a similar platform at the I/O conference last year, but has so far not been able to get the required licensing from the record industry. There is currently no news on when a service featuring this technology might be available to the masses, but if this leak is anything to go by, expect to see an application soon.

Meh i use PowerAmp.. it's a very very good music player!

The plus of PowerAmp is that it supports more media formats then other music players.
Most music players just only support what the device supports.

It works great for me on my desire and really quick too! Although it force closes last.fm

Anyone know how to get the cloud / streaming stuff working?

liking the app myself, droid x rooted gingerbread. now if they'd find a way to integrate it into the lock screen =) doesn't lag unlike the stock music app for me.

Winamp with a proper glass interface like ClearOne and the mighty CD Display enhancement rules...

PS and UGH! Amarok looks like crap. BLEH!

In your continued effort to perpetuate your liking for linux, you've totally missed the important fact that Winamp is also an Android App, and is indeed far better than this one.
