What’s this? Sync Music you say? This enigmatic option was apparently tucked away in the Data & sync folder of an Android 2.3 phone, suggesting that a Google Music service will be arriving on Android phones at some point in the near future.
It’s in the same folder where you’d normally sync contacts, Facebook and Twitter info and the like to your Android phone’s Google Account. Being able to sync audio files to your phone in the same way is pretty exciting stuff.
It’s possible that it’s a feature of an early build of Android 2.4, but GizmoFusion are saying that it’s definitely 2.3/Gingerbread.
This could be the first signs of a Google Music service being rolled out. We could see albums and individual tracks available to download in the Market, along with apps, games and the rest.
Or maybe the forthcoming Amazon App Store for Android will allow you to buy music (from any browser) and then sync tracks to your Android phone over the air? Curiouser and curiouser.
