Google Music Service Spreads to 7 More Regions; Plans to go Global

April 11, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Google’s Music service has been amassing so much popularity these days that they have decided to expand its realm. Google has redesigned the Google Play Store and it appears that after the redesign, the service has been enabled in Australia and New Zealand.

In the meantime, a post by Google has confirmed the launch of this service not only on these 2 places, but also on 7 countries in total. The other countries are Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, and Portugal.

Two months ago, it was reported that Google was having discussions with major music labels over attempts to launch a music streaming service. Are they trying to achieve the target starting off with a geographical conquest?


Analysts surely think so. Utilizing the music service, users can store up to 20,000 songs on Google Play absolutely free of cost. They can also have it streamed instantly to their Android device.

The next big thing with this service is that Google is releasing a Google Play artist hub for their respective country enabling them to sell music directly to their fans.

It was in November 2011 that this service had its first outing and Google announced then that it would be joining hands with 1,000 labels that will include EMI, Universal, Sony Music Entertainment, and smaller indie labels.

Prior to a day ago, this service was available in a select group of countries only. But it is nice to see that a service is going global as technology has turned this huge world into a single entity.
