Google launches Google Music
Google Music comes half a year after the beta launch of its cloud-storage service that didn't have backing from any major labels. This offical version has co-signs from every major label (except, for now, Warner) and Merlin, a consortium of larger indie labels. It offers free wireless storage accessible across a range of devices and full integration with an MP3 store as part of Android Market. Users can also share tracks across Google's struggling social network platform Google+, and unsigned artists can sell their own songs in the market.
