Google Music,may soon be ready for its public debut.The company’s employees have reportedly begun in-house testing of the service, a sure sign that a new product is nearly ready to launch.The test build of the Google Music app, which is said to stream users’ music libraries that are stored on Google servers, first leaked earlier this month after user “WhiteWindows” claimed on the XDA Developers forum.
It happened upon the Google Music streaming function after installing Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system, which includes a music app, on a rooted HTC EVO 4G. he was able to access the previously locked “Sync Music” feature, which gave him access to the streaming option.
Google had hoped to debut the service at this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) music and technology festival in Austin, Texas. That plan was shelved, however, though the exact reason for that has not yet been revealed.Google is currently in negotiations with “at least some of the top publishers” as well as with the four largest record labels.
According to the Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, who mentioned to the Guardian last month that Google had a “music service” in the works. A recent report from Billboard, which named executives rumored to be working on Google Music, adds further evidence that the streaming service is on its way.
