Despite not having the backing from major music labels, Google has decided to launch its own cloud-based music service.
The service will work by allowing users to upload music to the cloud so they can stream it via an internet connection meaning they can listen to it anywhere.
At the time of the report, Google advised that they planned to announce the plans of the service at their San Francisco Google I/O conference for developers which was to be run on the 10th and 11th May.
Back in march, Amazon released their own Cloud Player which allowed users to access their music via Android apps and the web. Google’s music service will act in pretty much the same way by acting as a remote ‘locker’ for music access.
The odd thing about this is that Google are going to launch without the support of any major record labels. Whilst a cloud based service doesn’t always need additional licences from the record labels, Google could be restricted in what features can be added to the service.
