Google tipped to be launching music offering
LONDON - Google is working on the imminent launch of a music service which will feature content from major labels, according to reports.
The web is buzzing with speculation that the search giant is to enter the music sector with a new service for finding music content on the web following an initial report on the technology blog TechCrunch.
TechCrunch said the service will be available at least in the US but it is unclear whether it is a download or streaming service.
According to Wired.com, the service will launch next week and offer enhanced music search with a streaming option.
Both reports claim major music labels will be supplying content for the service.
Wired.com reported that searching for an artist or song will apparently bring up a box with a streaming link randomly assigned to stream from either US-based music streaming services Lala.com or iLike.com.
Google said it refuses to comment on rumour and speculation.
