Google Music Sync works ahead of launch on rooted Gingerbread phones

Google Music Sync is a much anticipated service that will provide users with the ability to enjoy their whole music library over-the-air. No need to keep it stored on your Android device and use up all that space. Now it seems that this service can be enabled to work through the music players of rooted Android device running 2.3.3, before it has even been officially launched.

The ever-testing and never-resting guys over the XDA developers site have found, by chance, that if you have a Gingerbread-running device, which you’ve rooted already, you can use this unofficial feature. Cool, right?

Here’s how Google Music Sync works. You have to upload your music onto Google servers, from which you can then stream it right on your device wirelessly. You can probably enjoy it on your Chrome netbook too. The obvious catch here is that you’ll need a reliable internet connection to enjoy this service.

We are yet to see the real benefits of a service like this.
