Google to Launch a Music Service

Details are still scares, but there is word that Google will be launching a music service in a little under a week. Such a service may make it easier to find and stream music, or could just be a conduit to buy it. If it is the latter, Apple could soon be feeling a pinch.

"Google will partner with iLike and Lala for their new music service, we’ve learned. And the announcement date is Wednesday, October 28, 2009.

Press, including us, received an invitation this morning (see ticket image above) inviting them to a Hollywood event next week hosted by music services Lala and iLike. The invitation, titled “Discover Music!” says announcements will be followed by performances, and that Lala, iLike “& Others” are hosting. The “& Others” includes Google, we’ve heard from multiple sources, and the new service will be unveiled. All four major music services are backing the service.
