Google Music being tested internally According to Cnet, Google is readying its Google Music service for launch, with the search giant already testing the platform internally.
Rumored since at least last October, the platform was last mentioned at the MWC event, where Motorola Mobility boss Sanjay Jha boasted that the Xoom tablet would soon have access to "a music service from Google Mobile services."

The service should allow users to stream music via PCs or Android phones/tablets, as well as purchase songs via the Android Market.

It appears that Google is still negotiating with the labels, however, seeking cloud music rights for user's existing libraries of purchased music.

If true, the service will be a direct competitor to Apple's iTunes, which still controls over 70 percent of the music download market.
