Google Music's deauthorize rule upsets users

Google Music now only allows users to deauthorize four devices per year. Previously, users could deauthorize as many devices as they'd liked without worrying about hitting a limit, according to the forum posters.

In order for Google Music to work with devices, users must authorize them to work with the platform. Google limits the number of devices that can be authorized to 10. So, when users want to swap out a smartphone for another or connect their library to another device, they'll need to deauthorize an old one if they've hit the 10-product limit. Apple's iTunes platform comes with a similar product-authorization function.
"Def. Need to find a way around this. I'm maxed out on deauthorizations and I'm at 8 devices," said forum poster "anthonok."

Although it's not immediately clear why the change was reportedly made, one forum poster said that they called Google for information, which revealed that the modification was rolled out within the last 60 days.
