Introduction: Why you might want to upload your iTunes library to Google Music
There are a few reasons you might want to upload your iTunes library to Google Music. Maybe you’re switching from iPhone to Android and want to keep all your music in one place.

Or maybe you’re like me and have both an Android phone and an iPhone, and want the best of both worlds: the convenience of having all your music backed up in the cloud and available on any device, plus the ability to use iTunes for managing playlists, cleaning up tags, etc.
In any case, here’s how to do it.
