It’s Thursday, Google must be launching something: Can’t wait to try out Google Music (story via news.com):
Google Music will allow a user to type in the name of a band, artist, album or song in the main Google search bar special, and results will appear at the top, accompanied by icons of music notes, said Marissa Mayer, vice president of search products and user experience at Google.
Items that can be purchased will have links to merchants for online ordering or downloading, she said. Initial merchant partners include Apple Computer’s iTunes service, RealNetworks Rhapsody, eMusic, Amazon.com.
I’ve been a big fan of Yahoo! audio search, so it will be interesting to compare the two.
