Google is unveiling a digital music service without any licensing deals after proving unable to come to an agreement with major labels, reports Billboard.
The service, which was introduced during a keynote today at a conference in San Francisco, will allow users to upload their music library to a personal online storage locker, where they can stream and download files from Internet connected devices.
This is pretty much the same as Amazon’s Cloud Drive, but with a few differences. Google’s service is available on a limited, invite-only basis limited to U.S. users and those wanting to use the service will have to request an invite at music.google.com, with priority given to those with the Motorola Xoom tablet and to attendees of the conference.
Additionally, Google is also limiting the number of songs that can be uploaded to the music locker to 20,000. The service is free while in beta, and the company would not comment on what future pricing options it may have planned.
“We’ve been in negotiations with the industry for a different set of features, with mixed results,” Google director of content partnerships Zahavah Levine says. ”[But] a couple of major labels were less focused on innovation and more on demanding unreasonable and unsustainable business terms.”
Seems like a cool idea. People definitely like fast technology, so this whole streaming and downloading thing sounds promising. But the idea also has some flaws. It’s limited availability is definitely not going to help them – people want things while its hot, and if they wait too long, nobody will want it in a couple months when it’s widely available.
Google has been really pushing forward these days, though. First the Android getting really great reviews and now this. Does Apple have some competition?
Lady Gaga is always on the hustle, and now she is hocking Google’s Android phone in Japan. The commercial features Lady Gaga and a cool remix of “Poker Face.”
According to PerezHilton the remixed track has now become the eighth most downloaded tune on iTunes Japan. So she gets paid to appear in the commercial, along with earning some extra bucks on the downloads.
Very smart Ms. Gaga!
