Google Music launched today, and while the service is obviously aimed square at the company’s own products, it happens to play nice with other devices as well. Since the Google Music Web app is intended to work nicely in Google Chrome you can bet it’ll work in other Webkit-based browsers as well — including Mobile Safari on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

There’s not even any wizardry required — just point your browser to and sign in. You’ll need to request a beta invite first, of course, but early reports indicate that they’re fairly easy to come by in the U.S. The experience isn’t ideal, and you’ll probably notice a bit of lag when scrolling through your library (once you’ve uploaded some songs, obviously).

CNET points out that iOS multitasking is supported as well, so you can keep listening to your Google Music in the background while you perform other tasks on your device.
