Google has just announced its much rumored and talked about Music store, here at an event in States.
The Google Music service from the giant will be available for its Android users to enjoy directly from the Android Market. All major labels including Universal, EMI and Sony along with many Indie artists are on-board, except for Warner Music group.
All the music will be hosted on the cloud at 320Kbps MP3 file format, without any DRM. Users also get a 90-second preview of the song, before purchasing it. Google Music will also offer its users access to some exclusive tracks from many popular artists like Coldplay, Pear Jam and Rolling Stones. Busta Rhymes will be releasing his new album exclusively on Google Music.
The most interesting part about Google Music is its Song Sharing feature. After purchasing a particular song or album from the Google Music store, users can share that song or album with their friends via Google+. Your friends will get to listen to the full song or album which you shared only once. Like earlier rumored, there will also be a free song of the day thing on store, similar to Amazon’s App Store.
The service will be available for all Android 2.2+ handset owners in the United States, only! Google did not mention anything about bringing the service to any other region of the world.
