Apple has released a new version of iTunes (Nov.14)that adds the company’s new scan-and-match service for music on.
iTunes 10.5.1 includes iTunes Match, a feature that scans a user’s library to find music that wasn’t purchased from Apple. If it finds a match in Apple’s own Music Store library, Apple provides a user with a cloud-based version at the same quality they’d find if they bought it off iTunes–at least so long as they’re a paid subscriber to the matching service, which costs $24.99 a year.
How to use it, are you somewhat strange and worry?
First, make sure you are running the latest version of iTunes. On a Mac, go to iTunes > About iTunes to see which version you are running. If it’s not version 10.5.1, go to iTunes > Check for Updates to download and install the latest version. On a PC, you can access the About iTunes and Check for Updates menu options from the Help menu.
After upgrading to iTunes 10.5.1, you’ll see iTunes Match listed under Store in the left panel. Click on it and then click the blue “Subscribe for $24.99″ button. iTunes then starts scanning your library before trying to match your songs with its huge library of songs in the cloud. It then uploads the songs (and artwork) it was unable to match. Of the 6,885 songs my library, iTunes was unable to match 1,380 songs. Of course, mileage may vary.
