It seems that business war between Google and Apple is accelerating with multi folds. Still iPhone vs Android discussion are not over and now Google seems to be all set to challenge the supremacy of Apple in the Digital Music world. Till date Apple is riding high in Music world by its iTunes services but that wont be the case for long now as Google seems to be gearing up for its Google Music Store launch by this fall.
According to multiple music industry sources, Google could launch a music service that offers song downloads and streaming music as early as this fall.
Google has already signaled that it wishes to give users of phones equipped with Google’s Android operating system a better music offering. At Google’s I/O conference last month, the search engine offered attendees a demonstration of a Web-based iTunes competitor. Also TechCrunch reported two weeks ago that it discovered a “Google Music” logo hosted on Google’s domain.
But Google’s plans go beyond Android, say music sector insiders. Another News source CNET has learned that Google first stoked excitement among executives at some of the top four major labels during the Consumer Electronics Show in January. That’s where they revealed some of the features that a Google music store might include, such as tying digital downloads and streaming music to Google’s search results.
Google did not respond to interview requests.
