anyone got this app on their tv? Cant find it in the market
have you tried getting it from another market like getjar?
Looks like its still in Beta
I was able to install the APK from the GTV Hacker Dropbox account; however, its very limited in functionality.
the apk in the dropbox looks nothing like the screens shots they were taunting
I wonder if certain bits of UI is only accessible in portrait mode. There's only one screenshot that is reflects the UI of the Google TV app.
Ive been using google music and so far so good. Im able to play all the files i have. I previously had a Google Music account and uploaded all my music (over 20k) and its all showing up on google music and im able to play all of it. Ive been using it on my Evo 3D and it works fine on my Sony Blu ray as well.
Not sure what version of the app i have. Do all of you have a google music account?
I do not. Still awaiting my invitation. Where did you get the Google Music App?
When i received the invite i downloaded the app to my PC and then it gave me the link to dload the android app. I can send you an invite if you PM me ur email address
I actually contacted Google about the Music app, and this was their response:
In case everyone hasn't already tried it, you can sideload the Google Music Beta app and it works ... sorta.
It doesn't think you're connected to the internet if you have Ethernet plugged in at all ... however, if you connect via WiFi it will work.
With this in mind, for those using Ethernet a workaround is to connect via WiFi, mark your interesting music to be available offline, then once it finishes downloading revert your connection. It will play just fine with the offline music.
It's also not as pretty as I thought it should be .... but this might be my imagination.
If I still have one I will send it to you tonight

Thanks Towboy, but I've already accepted oOadmaOo's gracious invitation. I do appreciate the sentiment however.
And I had one for you too
I got it working and it looks like the tablet version, synchs to my music beta account but no files will play.
Haven't tried to play local files with it. On my phone it plays local files but won't synch to music beta site.
check out my home screen! Live wallpaper, animated weather widget, MoreIcons widget and a horoscope widget.
I'm having too much fun

i would love a beta invite if anyone knows how i can get my hands on one
I got 8 invites left all I need is an email addy for you.
Agree, works only on wifi.
Still don't have a GTV to test, but I thought I'd mention if you have an Amazon Prime account, you have UNLIMITED storage for music (mp3's, mostly IIRC) for the duration of the current member period, then $20 annually thereafter. This makes it more compelling than Google Music, since I have nearly a terabyte of song data...and I hope Google ups the ante as a result.
