Google Ready To Announce Streaming Music Service?

The Verge, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times are all reporting that Google will launch a streaming-music service at its Google I/O developers conference on Wednesday. 

While Google hasn’t commented, according to the reports Google has already struck licensing deals with Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment – it already has a deal with Warner Music Group. 

No word on pricing yet, but the Times said that there would be no “free” tier of service. The new service is expected to be accessed via the Google Play store for Android devices, but Google is also said to be working on a streaming-music product for its YouTube division. 

Details are expected to be announced at the Google I/O keynote on Wednesday.
