One of the hazards of getting exciting about pre-release software is sometimes things change. In the latest iOS 5 Beta 7 released Wednesday, there are a few tweaks it seems to how the Music app interacts with the iTunes Match service. Initially it performed very similar to streaming, by most layman's definitions, when comparing to services like Spotify and YouTube. With the latest version, however, it seems any time a user initiates a playback from iCloud, the file ends up downloading to the local Music library on the iOS Device.
Interestingly, the latest iTunes player for Mac still plays like originally observed. Time will tell if this holds up.
