After long speculations, Google announced it's launching its digital music service today. The announcement will be made this afternoon at the I/O Developer Conference in San Francisco, and will be followed by a demo. Users of Spotify will be familiar with the service: you get to upload your personal music library on Google's servers, and you get to access those libraries anytime & anywhere from web-connected devices. 

It's understood they're currently in talks with 4 major record labels so that music can also be purchased/streamed & shared with friends. A yearly subscription is expected to go for about £20. (Fyi Apple is expected to launch a similar cloud-based service later this year, so maybe hold out until then?).
