As suspected, Google will be announcing at their I/O conference this morning a streaming music service for desktop and mobile. Simply called Music, the early beta is currently only available in the United States, but will allow users to upload their songs to share with the world at large, much like Grooveshark. Record labels probably won’t be particularly happy about this, but Google is all about making information available to everyone. Google Music will let users store 20,000 tracks in the cloud – more than enough for the vast majority of us.
We’ve got a liveblog going and will be updating this post with more details as they happen, but in the meantime, head on over here to sign up for the free beta of Google Music.
