Apple Releases iTunes Match Beta To Developers

Apple has just released iTunes Match beta to developers in the U.S.
in June. It allows users to store their entire music collection (up to 25,000 songs), including songs that they’ve ripped from CDs or purchased from anywhere else in iCloud.
iTunes determines which songs in your collection are available in the iTunes Store. Any music with a match is automatically added to your iCloud library for you to listen to anytime, on any device. Since there are more than 18 million songs in the iTunes Store, most of your music is probably already in iCloud. All you have to upload is what iTunes can’t match. Which is much faster than starting from scratch. And all the music iTunes matches plays back at 256-Kbps iTunes Plus quality — even if your original copy was of lower quality.
iTunes Match costs $24.99 per year and Apple has mentioned that beta subscribers will get an additional three months to cover the beta period with their 12 month paid subscription.
Apple has also advised beta users to take a local backup of their iTunes library as well as any song one adds to iCloud as Apple may periodically reset user’s iCloud library during the beta period.
