Filed as News on May 14, 2013 11:11 pm

Google MusicGoogle is about to enter the world of online streaming music. According to reports from The Verge and the Wall Street Journal the software giant will roll out the new feature for both Google Play and YouTube users.

While Google’s software platforms  ranging from Gmail and Google Maps to Google Docs and continue to receive praise the company has failed to keep up with its competitors in terms of media offerings.

To reach a level playing field with Apple and Amazon the company reportedly signed licensing deals with Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment. Those two media conglomerates make up a large portion of the mainstream music market and are considered must have partners for any serious online streaming partner. 

According to reports the Google music streaming platform will resemble Spotify by playing on-demand songs on desktop and mobile devices via subscription service.

Google has not confirmed the report but if true it would mean that the search giant will beat a Apple to the music streaming market. Apple is believed to be working on an iRadio feature that would also compete with the likes of Spotify and now Google.

A name for the new Google service has not been revealed at this time.

Are you ready to test drive a Google run music streaming service?
