Google Goes To Spotify For Music Service
The recent development in Google’s talks with major record labels isn’t going well as no agreement has been made yet for a licensing deal. The company plans to launch its own online music streaming service however in order for them to do so a licensing agreement must be reached between the different major record labels.
Google is considering another option and plans to partner with Spotify to make their streaming music service available. Spotify is a popular European music streaming service that is still set to make its debut in the US. This development was leaked by insiders in both companies however the official statement of both companies is that no talks have been made yet.
Google plans to launch its own online music streaming service this year to compete with Apple’s upcoming service. Apple however has already reached an agreement with Warner Music Group which makes the company have the edge. Both Google and Apple however were beaten to the punch by Amazon who just recently launched its own cloud music service however without any agreement from the major recording labels.
Cloud music streaming is seen as the next format in distributing music which makes it easier for people to access and share their music library.
