  • Google wants to experiment with new product areas, so considering their market cap is $263 billion, they might as well throw a few billions towards a music service. The Financial Times is saying that Google is in talks with major music labels about a possible streaming music service.


    The Times are saying that the new music service is expected to offer a subscription model and free unlimited access to songs, supported by advertising. This means it will be pretty much like Spotify and Deezer. Google did have a music download store in the US, started in 2011 and expanded since to 5 European countries. Just like Apple, Google can use its tablets and smartphones and Android OS to promote the servce.

    Back in 2006, Google actually talked about a new digital music service that would break Apple’s domination on the legal song download market. It may be very interesting for music bigshots to hear this talk about partnerships, while Google has been accused of failing to kill pirate music sites. The sites keep appearing on top of Google’s search results for popular songs or artists.
