Google MusicGoogle yesterday unveiled an online music store to rival iTunes, while also opening its cloud music service to all U.S. users.

Google Music's cloud service -- first announced in May (RAIN coverage here) -- will remain free. It allows users to upload up to 20,000 songs and then stream them from Google Music's website or via Google's Music Android app.

Google also announced yesterday that 200 million Android devices have been activated worldwide.

Songs in Google's new music store range from 69 cents to $1.29. They are added instantly to the user's Google Music cloud library. The store includes 13 million tracks from EMI, Sony Music, Universal and 23 independent labels (Warner Music Group is notably missing).

Additionally, artists can use Google's Artist Hub to upload and sell their music through Google's store. The artist sets the price and Google takes a 30% share of each sale.

Earlier this week Apple launched its own cloud music service, iTunes Match (RAIN coverage here). Amazon also offers a cloud music service (more here).

You can find more coverage from the Washington Post here, CNet here and Google's blog here.

I can't help thinking

A word to the wise. This is just cluelessness which characterises a lot of the debate spouted by the parasites in the content on this subject. Dissertation writing online has created a virtual Disneyland for global corporate policy. Google Music = albatross. I have always been an admirer of Michael Schmitt.
