Apparently, Google is following the foot marks of world’s most valuable brand Apple by showing some serious acts towards multi-million dollar online music industry . In 2008, Company launched its “Chrome browser” followed by “Chrome Operating system” in July, 2009 which continued till mid of this year when company launched cloud music service. Now, Google is in talk with several record labels to extend their music services and to open MP3 music store to compete with Amazon and Apple.

According to numerous music executives, Google is eager to open up the store in the next several weeks. It would most likely be connected to Google’s existing cloud service, Music Beta, which lets people back up their songs on remote servers and stream them to mobile phones and other devices, said these executives, who all spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks are in progression, private and continuing.

However, company has yet not officially commented whether they will launch the stores in next few weeks but sources have confirmed about the initiatives.

Google might announce its music store before Apple will open its cloud music program, iTunes Match, which was unveiled by Apple in June this year and is expected t be operational by the end of October or early November this year. However, it would be interesting to monitor whether Google will be able to launch its MP3 music store before iTunes match since it’s not easy to clinch the necessary deals with tons of labels in such short span.

However, The earlier experience for music labels with Google was not so encouraging. Google smart locker service  — a Web storage system that lets people link their digital music collections to a vast central database – broke down over some financial issues. Also the music labels lodged complain against Google for not acting seriously to control piracy.

“We want to make sure the locker doesn’t become a bastion of piracy,” one senior label executive said.

Google has already failed in past to get license from the labels and publishers as, companies like Google, one need special licenses from the music copyright holders. In order to eradicate that fact from market, company has introduced its beta-version of cloud music in May this year.

Google has announced its Music beta version five weeks after Amazon opened a similar unlicensed service called “Cloud Drive”.

Apple has the licensed version for iTunes match which will instantly link users’ song to Apple masters Collection. With an unlicensed version, its difficult for users to get tuned with music in short span of time, it takes more than an hour to get tuned.

Hope this new mobile store by Google will launched soon and rock the world, so that users will get more options for listening songs.

Reader’s please let us know your your views over upcoming music initiative from Google.
