Looks like Google is going to take the silver and beat Apple to Cloud-based music services. Following Amazon’s Cloud Player, what will make users want to migrate their music there(probably more features and more platform support?) We’ will find out for sure tomorrow at Google I/O.

UPDATE: Things are happening fast, people. Peter Kafta of AllThingsD has shed a little more light on how Google Music will work. The service will apparently automatically create playlists based on your interests. Google will also allow users to upload up to 20,000 songs — which is roughly 50GB worth of songs. Google expects the service to launch for the general public in the weeks following the beta release — that’s very good news.”

Ahhh, there’s the hook! 50 GB!
