iTunes Match: Understanding the iCloud Status icons

After you add a computer to iTunes Match, you may notice new icons appear in your Music library. Refer to the table below to learn about each icon.

Icon Description Definition
Ineligible This icon appears next to items that aren't eligible to be uploaded to iCloud using iTunes Match. For example, songs that are larger than 200MB or songs encoded at 96 Kbps or less.
Removed This icon appears when you remove a song from iCloud (from a different computer). Songs deleted from iCloud are immediately deleted from associated iOS devices, but will remain on other associated computers until you manually delete them.
Error This icon may appear if the song file is corrupt or if there was an error uploading the song. Try updating iTunes Match (Store > Update iTunes Match) to resolve this. If updating doesn't resolve the issue, try importing a new copy of the song into your iTunes library.
Duplicate This icon appears when a duplicate version of this song exists in your iTunes library on your computer. This icon will appear next to duplicates that weren't uploaded to iCloud.
Waiting This icon appears when a song is in the process of being matched and hasn't been processed.
Available for Download This icon appears when a song is available in iCloud and hasn't been downloaded to your local library.
