Rumors suggest that Google could benefit from the establishment of Spotify on the market for online music as a service provider, to ensure the success of its own music listening service continuously.
Specifically, Google will look carefully at the software technology used by the Swedish Spotify, which could allow it not to be overtaken by Apple iTunes. By relying on a player already in place, this partnership could also allow Google to take a legal shortcut, avoided each other in endless negotiations with record companies.
According to rumors, in addition to offering downloads, Google would also provide a space for music storage to users, allowing them to recover their shares from any computer or mobile device.
Spotify offers online music streaming online for Windows and Mac OS X. Listening is admittedly limited – five maximum readings of the same song and a monthly limit set at 10 hours of music listening – but a paid version allows for unlimited access to its catalog of 10 million securities, without commercials. In addition, users can store their music (up to 3000 songs) on three different devices to access them even offline.
In October 2009, Google had partnered with LaLa and iLike (MySpace) in order to provide service to search for music online “Discover Music” incorporated into its search engine. It allows you to find the music by title, artist name, album or group and even from song lyrics.
