Google Music to be Announced at Google I/O 2011
Google Music is expected to launch today at Google I/O 2011. Last year, Google demoed what Google Music (your music on the cloud) would be like, but due to several issues, they would be launching Google Music this year at #io2011.
Music server by Google took many hiccups in the past several months with music labels not signing up with Google, but this didn’t stop Google from not offering the Google Music service for Android users.
Google will announce Google Music today, on the first day of Google I/O 2011 event – WSJ reports. After digging depeer into this, AllThingsD have found a few more details about the Google Music service that Google will be offering.
This service will allow users to upload their music on Google Music and later stream it on their Android phone from anywhere, anyplace with an Internet connection. Google Music will allow you to upload 20,000 songs, unlike Amazon Cloud-Based Music Hosting that only allows you to store 2,000 songs online.
No details on the pricing yet, but our guess is that this service will be available for free. Google will probably charge more for storing more than 20,000 songs online. Google Music will launch as an invite-only beta service for selected users.
We’ll update as more details get in and Google Music goes official at the Google I/O 2011 event.
