The music service from Google is being tested by employees of the company, reveal anonymous sources quoted by Cnet. One step closer to its availability …
Google’s approach to guiding the availability of its music service would be somewhat delayed by negotiations with the players in this industry such as Universal Music, Warner Music, EMI and Sony Music. The main difficulty encountered by Google based on the fact that its service would be based on a continuous listening and not downloads.
Moreover, various rumors have reported for some time that Google Music would also provide storage space for music online, allowing users to retrieve their credentials from any computer or mobile device.
In February, at the Mobile World Congress, Sanjay Jha, CEO of Motorola Mobility, suggested that Google Music will be launched simultaneously with the release of its Android operating system optimized for the tablets, Honeycomb. However, sources quoted by CNET look instead for a launch in April.
Google has already launched a music service in India, to fight against online piracy. Thousands of full songs can be heard already legally on the Indian Googlesite. All of music titles available through Google is in Hindi.
Google has launched a music service in China two years ago. Unlike the Indian service, the Chinese site allows downloads, but it does not allow foreigners to access Internet.
