Earlier this week Google’s Andy Rubin confirmed that Google are developing their own music store, and revealed that when it is launched it would come with a Twist. Apparently and unnamed source within the music industry has divulged that the “twist”Rubin is talking about is music sharing.
Allowing Google Music users to “send” songs they have purchased to their friends. Exact details on how the system will work are still a little sketchy at the moment but its thought that the songs will be granted a certain number of plays or have a time limited applied to them in some way.
The source also revealed that the new Google Music service will allow users to “pin” their tracks to mobile devices and that Google Music will be a straight per-song download store, with no subscriptions. The new Google Music service is expected to launch sometime before the end of the year.
