Watch out Spotify!

googlespotifyRumor has it that Google is diving into the subscription music service game. It looks like they are getting ready to go head to head with Spotify who they tried to acquire back in April. They’ll also be going up against the bigger competitors like Apple, who currently is leading the market in online music sales and plans to launch they’re own music service this year. Also in Google’s crosshairs are Pandora, Rdio, and Amazon.

Google’s service would be weaved into Youtube who receives 800 million unique visitors a month, and Google Play a digital media store which launched in 2011. They landed licensing deals with Warner Music Group, Universal Music, and Sony all major players in the music industry which puts Google in a strong position. Monthly subscription price is unknown at the moment.

Wednesday May,15th Google will hold a developers conference which takes place at Google I/O in  San Francisco, the company also is expected to announce several upgrades to the Android software.
