From Issue:

FROM TODAY'S EARLY EDITION: First broken by The Verge (here), now both The New York Times (here) and The Wall Street Journal (here) are also reporting that Google is expected to announce a subscription streaming music service later today at Google I/O, the company's annual developers conference.

The company reportedly has finalized licensing deals with all three major record label groups. The new service will reportedly resemble services like Spotify more than traditional webcast services (like Pandora -- which presumably will be the model for Apple's "iRadio" service that's expected).

The new Google streaming service will reportedly not include a free version. The fee isn't known at this point, but is expected to be similar to that of Spotify and other services like Rhapsody and Rdio, $10 a month.

The new service is actually one of two music services Google reportedly has in the works. Google-owned YouTube is also said to be developing a music service, and negotiations with labels continuing.
