Google Music Cloud Service

Google Expected To Launch Cloud Music Service Tomorrow

Google’s much anticipated Cloud Music Service is expected to be unveiled tomorrow at Google I/O according to AllThingsD.

The service is expected to be similar to Amazon’s Music Cloud service, acting as a “music locker” for a users own tracks. The service is also expected to offer 20GB free storage as opposed to Amazon’s 5GB storage, however Amazon currently sells music, a feature Google is lacking at this time and which may drive users towards Amazon’s service.

Unfortunately new features for the service are hard to bring to market (such as streaming Rdio and Spotify music), obstacles created according to Google’s Jamie Rosenberg because:

“Unfortunately, a couple of the major labels were less focused on the innovative vision that we put forward, and more interested in in an unreasonable and unsustainable set of business terms”

All will be revealed…or not…tomorrow [via All Things D]
