Google Music Store ‘With A Twist’ to Arrive Soon

October 19, 2011, By Leo Xavier

We have been hearing a lot of rumors about Google’s plans to introduce a music store of its own. And now, it appears the search giant has indeed planned for one to go along with its new Google Music service.

Android boss Andy Rubin has confirmed that Google is working on the music store and that it will be launched sometime soon.

He was onstage at the AsiaD conference in Hong Kong when he said “I think we’re close”. Unfortunately, he hasn’t given out any hints regarding an exact launch date.


As you might remember, Google did manage to introduce a music store/service earlier and it was blessed with the big music labels. But those label deals fell apart and Google later launched their own cloud-based music locker.

Now, it appears like they have got a chance to launch a music service with help from the labels. This will help Google to become a strong rival to Amazon and Apple who are already selling music and offering cloud lockers.

But the search giant will definitely need all the big labels on board. According to the latest info, only EMI Music was close to a final deal.

Andy Rubin has also promised that Google’s music store “will have a little twist – it will have a little Google in it. It won’t just be selling 99 cent tracks”. We are expecting to get more info soon. We will keep you updated.
