Google Music Service Come to Life in the Fall

Rumors of Google launching a music service have been going around for some time till yesterday it was confirmed by CNET. Google indeed is building an online music service that could debut as early as this fall. The service reportedly would include both download and streaming options.

Considering that Google and Apple have been competing against each other more often than not nowadays, this was expected. I wasn’t sure when though.

The company’s existing forays into music include its music video juggernaut, YouTube, as well as the Vevo joint venture and Music Onebox — which ties streaming options to search results for music-related topics. Google also recently acquired Simplify Media, which offers cloud-based music storage, and said that it planned to build a similar service for its Android operating system.

Whether Google will be able to successfully pull it off, that will be a different story. We will certainly monitor this and keep you all posted.

    I think it’ll be far more interesting to see how Apple responds to this, especially since their acquisition of the music streaming service, lala.
