Google To Launch Music Storage Service

Google has a new music storage service in the works for Android users called Music Beta.

The Google site explains more: “Music Beta is a new service from Google that gives you instant access to your personal music collection without the hassle of wires or syncing. Add your music collection and listen on the web or any compatible Android device.”

The service is launching without the cooperation of the major record labels. MSNBC reports: “And like the Amazon Cloud Drive player, Google music service is being introduced on Tuesday without any prior licensing deals with major music labels, following months of fruitless negotiations…Amazon’s service caused a furor in the music industry because it had not reached any licensing agreements with major music companies: Vivendi’s Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and EMI Group.”
