Google cloud music confirmed

May 10, 2011

Google plans to introduce its long-awaited service for users to upload and store their music collections on the Web and listen to their songs on Android phones or tablets and on computers.

The announcement of the new service will be made at the company’s developers conference.

The service, to be called Music Beta by Google, is similar to one introduced by Amazon in March, although it will store considerably more music. And like Amazon, Google does not have the cooperation of music labels, which means that users cannot do certain things that would legally require licences, like sharing songs with friends and buying songs from Google.
