The ability to upload and playback my music from an online location (the cloud)

After using Google Music and experiencing the convenience of having all of my personal music live online, I can't go back to any other service. Here are some of the advantages that I found using Google Music over Xbox Music:

1.) All of my songs are available. Because I collect B-Sides and other rare songs for even famous artists, Xbox Music's cloud matching doesn't find a lot of my music.

2.) Having my music online is the only solution for devices with limited storage like my phone or on devices such as the Xbox where the built-in Music app doesn't recognize physical songs on the hard drive. I don't have the option of physically transferring my music to various devices.

3.) I am old fashioned in that I still physically like buying CDs. Ripping a CD, uploading it to a cloud service that doesn't downsample the music too much, and having it available across all of my Windows and iOS devices is fantastic.

I feel that Xbox Music is really pushing the subscription angle, and I think that is great. The downside is that for songs that you can't get via the subscription, the option for uploading them should be provided.

Cheers,
Kirupa
