When will Google Music finally be a thing?
It has been a long time since we heard anything new about Google Music, but we do know it is not dead.
Google is preparing to launch a new music service which will be available to everyone who owns a subscription to the Google Music app, and is set to debut next month.
The service will feature both curated playlists and a dedicated artist feed.
The artist feed will be curated by Google, and feature artists who have been featured on the platform.
We don’t know when this new service will be live, but you can get a taste of it by watching the video below.
The company also said it plans to offer its own music service in the future, but that this will not be a subscription service.
“We will not introduce our own service to Google Music,” a spokesperson said.
“Instead, we will launch a music-centric, free music streaming service which is similar to Spotify.”
While Google has not released any details on what exactly the new service is, we can see a few things.
Firstly, it will offer a curated playlist with artists that have been added to Google’s curated music database, alongside curated playlist and artist feed options.
Secondly, this new music streaming platform will be free.
Google’s own Music service launched in the US and UK last year, and offers users access to thousands of tracks on the site, which can be played or listened to via the Google Play Music app.
The music service also supports offline listening via Google Play Movies and Google Play Books, as well as the recently announced Google Play Services.
