Google Will Launch New Music Service With Streaming And Downloads Shortly

In latest developments, Google’s much-talked about music service will not only offer both digital album and track downloads but a digital locker streaming service as well. And since this has been a long time in coming, reports from industry insiders have been spilling the beans on this proposal that Google has been circulating amongst record labels concerning this new music service and its offerings.

With this service which is very similar to what’s offered by iTunes, Google will similarly offer downloads either on a per-track or album basis, and if that’s not enough, they will also offer users with a digital locker service that costs about $ 25 a year.

This additional service will also allow them to access their music online either through their mobile devices and desktops since it will either add the music from their computer or the music bought from Google, and which some experts say is very similar to the new streaming service as offered by Rdio.

At another level altogether, this new offering from Google has been discussing the option of being able to allow for longer previews when it comes to listening to songs before buying them, and while they are insistent on a license that will let the listener hear the entire song, and then enjoy 30-second previews the next time around, the record labels are reluctant to comply as they have denied longer previews for the Apple iTunes Store as well.

However, no deals have been reached yet, as there is no doubt that there will be some limitations placed on the services that Google wishes to provide, and which will lead to further changes in negotiations.
