Google is rumored to be launching a music service, perhaps very soon. According to sources, “the new service’ll be named “Google Audio,” and it’ll be partnered with usual line-up of major record labels, and will obviously be intended to go head to head with current big players in industry, such as Amazon and Apple's iTunes. Also pointed that the service’ll differ greatly from the one that Google previously offered in China for free searching and downloading of music. The service’ll be available "at least in the U.S.," but it's apparently unclear whether it'll be a streaming-based service or downloadable. Google’ll partner with iLike and LaLa for their new music service. And the announcement date is Wednesday, October 28, 2009,” reports.
