With rumors circulating of a cloud-based music service for many moons, the day is finally upon us that Google will unveil their long-awaited service with free storage of up to 20,000 songs.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google will unveil the new service this afternoon at a San Francisco press conference.
According to the report, Google hasn’t obtained licenses from the four major record companies. This little detail has gotten Amazon into hot water with its Cloud Drive product. But Google’s version is said to allow users to upload their music to the cloud, but only stream it back on other devices, without the ability to download it, in what appears to be an attempt to limit piracy.
Of course this new additional Google service will first begin in beta form with only a few lucky to be invited in to check her out at first.
