This came up last year, but it seems that the Auto-matching service for Google Music uploading is down again. I tried uploading 22 albums yesterday and not a single song was matched. Same thing happened today. These were all FLAC files which generally have a much higher match rate. They were also fairly popular artists like The Weeknd & Radiohead.
I guess I will have to try again after a couple of days. Last year it took at least 3 days to get it running again.
It appears as though the music uploading auto-matching feature of Google Music is working again. Yesterday I re-uploaded 5 albums that previously didn’t have a single match. This time all but a couple of songs were matched.
I didn’t think they would go too long without getting that fixed.
It seems like the auto-matching functionality of Google Music hasn’t been working for the last few days. I tried to upload 4 albums that I ripped to FLAC, but not one song got a match. I find the system is better at matching FLAC files than it is at matching MP3 files. I’m guessing because it doesn’t sample the music and instead just goes by the ID3 tag and song length.
All 4 albums are available for sale on Google Music, so I know Google has a copy. I converted them to MP3 files just in case, but they still didn’t match. Traditionally, I get a match ~99% of the time (with FLAC files), so I know something is up.
I will try again in a few days to see if the issue has been corrected.
