Google has finally launched an online music service. It has launched an Android
music store to compete with iTunes and Amazon.com.
the service is available for Android users in the US only as Google has not done
deals with record labels to allow it to sell songs globally. The view in the industry
is mixed. Some feel that Google has arrived too late while others feel that competition
is always healthy. It will result in services improving.
senior VP mobile Andy Rubin said, "Google Music is open in the US at market.android.com,
and over the next few days, we will roll out the music store to Android market
on devices running Android 2.2 and above. You can also pick up the new music app
from Android Market and start listening to your music on your phone or tablet
