Google To Unveil Music Store
Following an October report, Google will unveil its online music store during an event in Los Angeles on Nov. 16. While the company's negotiations with major record labels including Warner Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment are not yet complete, a deal with Universal Music Group is expected to be finalized in time for the launch and Google has already inked a deal with an independent distributor, according to Billboard.biz. Details on what type of service Google will unveil were not disclosed, but it is likely that the service will fall under the company's cloud-based music service Music Beta by Google, and will incorporate sharing capabilities compatible with its Google+ social network platform.
