Google Music set to launch without Sony or Warner songs

The long-awaited Google Music service should arrive later this week at Google's Spinal Tap-inspired event, but if Cnet is to be believed, it'll launch without two of the biggest players in the US music industry. Sony and Warner will not be posting any of their artists on the new MP3 store, putting it at a major disadvantage to iTunes and other digital music vendors. The other two major labels, EMI and Universal, will be selling music through Google.

Google Music “These Go to Eleven” Announcement coming November 16th

Well folks, we just received word right from Google of an upcoming event that will clearly be about Google Music. It looks like the time has finally come and Google will be announcing and showing the world what they have in store for Google Music. If the "These Go to Eleven" didn't ring a bell for anyone, think Spinal Tap. If you don't know what that is I suggest you Google that, and enjoy it. Recent Google Music pages pointed to a music store coming to the Android Market, but we'll all know the details come next week.

Google Music page points to Android Market music sales

We've been hearing that Google will begin selling music directly for months, and it looks like it's about to finally come to pass. But don't take our word for it: head over to music.google.com with your Android device (make sure you've got your user agent set to default) and you'll see something similar to the screenshot on the right. The page mentions "millions of songs in the Android Market", though both links appear to be inactive at the time of writing.

Rumor: Google preparing its own MP3 store

Android users have a lot of options when it comes to music. Amazon's MP3 Store has become a de facto Android music platform, and there's plenty of 3rd party stores and apps that offer paid and free song downloads. Google's going head-to-head with Amazon with its cloud-based Google Music, but according to the New York Times, they may be after a more direct sales model with a full-on MP3 store.

Google Music Beta gives each current user invites to share

Back in May, we talked about the Google Music Beta service that was set to launch. The launch of the cloud service was open to invitation only and if you didn't get an invitation, you may have been bummed. The good news is that if you know someone on the service already they will have invites they can hand out. You had better ask fast though since each of the users only gets a pair.

Google to go head to head with iTunes through Honeycomb

Chief executive officer for Motrola Mobility Sanjay Jha let it slip today that Google is arming for war against Apple's iTunes music service by launching a competitor through their Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) OS. It's not secret that Google has been looking to topple Cupertino's dominance in the music download business, having bought Simplify Media last Spring for that purpose.
