Google音乐将在今晚的I/O大会上发布

消息不是很正式,但是Google将在其今天晚些时候的I/O大会上发布Google音乐服务是毫无疑问的了。虽然华尔街日报找不到一位Google发言人来确认,彼得卡夫卡在All Things D上联系了杰米罗森堡,Android产品管理总监,表示泄漏细节还为时尚早。

Google的服务将基本上模仿亚马逊的云服务的功能,即使Google没有能力直接向消费者出售音乐。矮油。不行的是,Google计划推出一个功能更完善的服务,而这项服务在和唱片公司谈判的谈判破裂后出轨。据罗森堡透露,“几大唱片公司对我们推出的创新版本缺乏关注,更多的兴趣在不合理的,不可持续的商业条款上。”因此,与其搁置这项服务,Google将推出其能够免费存储达20,000首个人自有歌曲的音乐服务,然后你可以通过互联网或者Android手机或者平板电脑来访问。

相比之下,亚马逊的服务仅提供5GB的免费存储空间,尽可以存储大约1200首普通的比特率歌曲。Google也将优于亚马逊,提供自动创建播放列表功能。Google预计将在数周之内为其美国用户部署音乐服务,同时测试邀请将会在今天晚些时候向Verizon 的Xoom用户发放。(其他用户将可以在music.google.com注册)关注这里,我们将在这里为您带来现场发布。

It’s not quite official but there’s little doubt that Google will launch its Google Music service at its big I/O event later today. While the Wall Street Journal couldn’t get a Google spokesman to admit it, Peter Kafka over at All Things D got Jamie Rosenberg, Director of Android Product Management, to spill the details a bit early.

Google’s service will essentially mimic the functionality of Amazon’s Cloud service, albeit without the ability to sell songs direct to consumers. Ouch. Unfortunately, Google’s plans to launch a more feature-complete service were derailed when discussions with the labels broke down. According to Rosenberg, “A couple of the major labels were less focused on the innovative vision that we put forward, and more interested in in an unreasonable and unsustainable set of business terms.” So, rather than putting the service on hold, Google will launch its music service with the ability to store up to 20,000 of your own songs for free which you can then stream over the web or to your Android phone or tablet.

Amazon’s service, by comparison, offers just 5GB of free storage for about 1,200 songs stored at a mediocre bitrate. Google will also best Amazon with a feature that automatically creates playlists. Google expects to rollout the service to its US users within “weeks” while beta invites should go out later today to Verizon Xoom owners (others will be able to sign up at music.google.com). Keep it right here because we’ll be bringing you the announcement live.
