Google has sent out invites to US based media houses for a special event titled – These Go to Eleven. Scheduled to take place on November 16, the event is expected to be launch of Google Music Store and will be streamed live at www.youtube.com/android.
According to rumors, Google will be launching its own music store along with Universal Music and the library of MP3 files will be available through current Google Music beta service.
Google currently offers free music streaming through its Google Music beta service. The new music store is expected to be announced on November 16 and it will exist along with the Google Music beta service currently available.
Notably, the Music Store will offer purchasing and downloading MP3 files. However, it is not going to be a simple MP3 purchase store by Google. The company has planned to add social feature to the music store service and will let users connect and link their Google+ accounts to the same. That means users would be able to share the song they are listening or recommend with +1.
Google will go one step ahead and let the song buyers to share it with friends to let them listen one time for free.
Google has been negotiating with some of the top labels but things are taking too long than expected.
Google Music Beta service is now available in almost every country but same would not be the case for the Music Store. Quite frankly, with the semi-organised Indian market, it might just take another year or so to see the songs for purchase through Google Music services.
We expect more details to be divulged at the Google Music event – These Go To Eleven at Los Angeles and live streaming available.
