The Google Music event is happening tomorrow, but that doesn’t stop information from leaking to the public beforehand. Well the folks over at Bloomberg recently received some information concerning Google’s music service. Apparently Google Music will have a store that resembles iTunes, and will let users purchase music. This news corroborates with the Google Music Store that we’ve seen in screenshots of the Android Market leaked earlier this week.
In addition to selling music, the Store is said to let users share one or two free listens of the songs with their friends on Google+. Google has also reportedly earned licensing deals with Sony, Universal Music Group and EMI to provide this service. Songs are said to cost between $0.99 and $1.29 and Google may offer discounts. It seems like Google’s entry into the MP3 selling market might be a bit late, seeing how we’ve already got established services like Amazon and iTunes, but it’s probably too early to tell if it’s going to be successful or not.
What do you think of a Google Music Store? What would make you choose to buy tunes from them instead of its competitors? More information will be revealed at the launch tomorrow, stay tuned.
