Spotify is in the frame as a potential partner to help Google launch a licensed music service, according to a CNET report. However, the streaming startup has denied the claims. CNET’s single ‘source with knowledge of the talks’ claims that Google has told labels that it has “begun discussions with Spotify in recent weeks, though no agreement is in place”. Further details are scarce, although the article focuses on a potential partnership between Google and Spotify rather than an acquisition of the latter by the former. However, Spotify has denied the claims, with the company’s spokesperson telling both CNET and Music Ally that there’s “nothing in it” when asked. In the meantime, there is one definitely-true Spotify news story bubbling.
