ReportTT: Google to announce music-streaming service at this year's I/O event

Report: Google will introduce a music-streaming service at this year's I/O

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Google will unveil a music-streaming service at this year's Google I/O. The event, which kicks off tomorrow, will reportedly focus on services instead of hardware, which would tie in nicely with a new music-streaming service.

Google already offers a music product, but it requires users upload their own music to stream or buy new songs. This new service would be more like Spotify's offering. According to people familiar with the matter, Google has already signed deals with Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Music Group. These deals will allow unlimited streaming of certain libraries for a fee.

 

It's not clear what the fee would be, though it would have to be competitive with current offerings. This means we could expect the fee to be less than $10 for unlimited streaming on any device.

 

If Google unveils a music-streaming service at Google I/O, you'll be able to read about it here at TweakTown.
