Google Music to Launch with Android 3.0 – Moto’s CEO May Have Leaked the Plans

Posted by at 3:52 pm on February 16, 2011

Motorola Mobility’s CEO Sanjay Jha may have spoiled plans for Google Music in his discussion at Mobile World Congress. He blurted out that “there will be a music service” and tied it closely to the launch of Android 3.0. Moto’s Xoom will be using Android 3.0.

Per the rumors so far, Google Music would be both a pay-per-track and streaming service. Its distinctive feature would be a music locker that would store a personal collection for access anywhere using technology taken from Simplify Media. Whether or not it comes along with the plan wouldn’t be certain. Labels have reportedly blocked Google as they believe that any remote storage constitutes a second use and needs an extra royalty fee.

The services have been important enough that Google’s Android lead Andy Rubin and others have supposedly been personally involved in negotiating the deals.
