Google Music Match reports recognition problems and replacement songs

Google Music Match reports recognition problems and replacement songs

Some users of the new music recognizer “Scan-and-Match”, recently launched in the U.S., filed complaints about the contents of their libraries after using the system. Songs full of explicit sexual content, were reported as “replaced” by clean versions (or censored). On the other hand, others said the exact opposite: clean tracks were exchanged for the uncensored version.

If this problem looks familiar, it’s because the same thing happened with Apple a few days after the service debuted iTunes Match , so I just need Microsoft to release a similar application and it fails, so they are all three equal. It is not known whether the problem is related to recognition systems and replacement songs themselves, or if there is something else behind the mess caused by Scan-and-Match.

It is expected that in the coming hours Google respond to users’ complaints about the service, for now, is available only in the United States.
