Don’t jump out of your chair and call for the lawyers, rightsholders. Google hasn’t (yet) done an Amazon and launched its cloud service without licences. However, its new Google Music app has leaked out, embedded in a developer version of the Android Market store. The app includes an option to access Google’s cloud music locker, although the feature does not yet work. What it confirms is that a.) a cloud locker is part of Google’s plans, and b.) it’s nearly finished, even if the licences are in place. Sources who’ve been demoed the new service tell us it’s very impressive, with richer scope than Amazon’s cloud offering in its present form. Source: Billboard
