Posted Nov 16, 2011

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) has launched a music store called Google Music today to make buying tunes for your Android devices more seamless. Google also launched a service called Music Manager that allows you to upload 20,000 songs to Google Music Manager for free. Google Music Manager can grab music automatically from your iTunes and/or Windows Media Player playlists.

Google has also brought Sony Music, EMI, and Universal Music on-board for the service. This gives Google Music access to 13 million tracks to sell. Google is working closely with bands such as Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Busta Rhymes, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Shakira, and several other artists to offer exclusive content. Busta Rhymes released his latest album “Why Stop Now” exclusively on Google Music.
