    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?

    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.

    Well from what I've read, it says that Europe got it ahead of us

    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.

    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.

    same here. i've been using google music since launch and uploaded about 5k songs. still have 13k to go and was expecting them to be matched overnight. no dice. i uninstalled music manager and reinstalled, erased the folder pointers and redid it. no dice. i have no idea what the hell is going on, but scan and match is NOT working for me...
