Default How to Activate 'Scan & Match' in Google Music???

Yesterday I downloaded Google Music Manager after hearing that there is now a scan and match feature. My upload is only .43Mbs (fastest available) so uploading my 8000+ songs is not something I want to do.

I installed the Manager but it does not scan and match. Instead, it is trying to upload each song.

Am I missing something?

Thanks.

I don't know where you're located OP, but I believe the feature is currently geofenced, and restricted to U.S. now, and I believe it's also in Europe, though I don't know where.

I'm pretty sure that it is restricted to US only.

I am in the US and use a US IP (no VPN).

Has anyone been able to get this to work?

When they say "almost instant", I assume that it is less than one minute per song. Correct?

Yes, this feature is available and that is why I am trying to get it to work.

Traveling this season and want to make sure your music goes with you? Add up to 20,000 songs from your music collection to Google Play and stream it to your Android devices and your computer, anywhere you go.

Our new music matching feature gets your songs into your online music library on Google Play much faster. We’ll scan your collection and quickly rebuild it in the cloud - all for free. And we’ll stream your music back to you at up to 320 kbps.

This feature is live today for people in the US, following our European launch last month. Check it out: http://goo.gl/Hehq6! It’ll be music to your ears.

I followed the instructions and downloaded Music Manager (from http://goo.gl/Hehq6 )and it seems to want to upload the files. I've checked every option in Music Manager and none seem to have a "scan and match" feature.
