Google has launched its own Music Store by partnering with three big music labels and it is currently accessible in the US. The Google Music service was available previously only in beta but now its mainstream version is also live.
Google Music has a library of over 20,000 songs. Apart from offering music, it links to Google+ so that people can share songs they’ve bought with their friends.
Google Music Store members will get a free song everyday. They’ll be able to store these free songs in the cloud, and stream them to their mobile phones or web browsers. Google has tied-up with Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, EMI and other independent labels.
Based on the music in your library, the songs you listen to and have purchased, Google Music Store will recommend to you similar artists and songs. The store will compete with Amazon MP3 Store and Apple iTunes.
Google Music Store also has Artist Hub where musicians can sell tracks without having to sign up with a music label, and they’ll receive 70 percent share on sales.
Google Music Store will be accessible on the web through this link and also on Android smartphones through the Music app, once it is available in your region.
