Google launches Music Beta
The service, which has been named Music Beta was announced at an event organised in San Fransisco. With the Music Beta by Google, the cloud based hard disk will enable users to upload 20,000 songs.
SEARCH ENGINE giant Google on Tuesday announced that it will be launching a cloud based online music service, which is similar to that of the one offered by Amazon. The technology will also enable users to upload songs on their servers and stream it live from their computers or smartphones. The announcement was made a day after YouTube announced its move of renting movies.
 
The service, which has been named Music Beta was announced at an event organised in San Fransisco. With the Music Beta by Google, the cloud based hard disk will enable users to upload 20,000 songs, but they will not be able to download any songs. Whereas, the service launched by Amazon, which is called Cloud Player, allows its users to access almost 1,000 songs on its servers.
 
In order to get the service on Apple's iPad or iPhone, the user should have Flash player installed. However, tech analysts like Vishal Tripathi claimed that Music Beta is directly aiming at Apple's iTunes. Seemingly, both products are different. "On iTunes you can buy songs but can't store them in a cloud. But I believe the differences are just because Google and record labels that own copyright for songs failed to reach a deal in time. He further adds that once the deals are done, Google will offer users an option to buy songs as well store them on the cloud," said Tripathi.
