Google to launch a great big cloud of music
As we anticipated, Google have today launched Android 2.2, to be better known as ‘Froyo’ (no, us neither). But Google wiseguy Vic Gundotra also gave the world a sneak peak of another forthcoming concept – and it’s got the makings of being an iTunes-killer.
Before too long, Android users will be able to download an app from the Android Market and then have it automatically download to all of their Android devices. Now take that concept and apply it to music.
With the new system, you’ll go to the Market, choose a song to buy, click on ‘download’ and it’ll download to all of your Android devices simultaneously (or at least we assume it’ll go to the ones you’ve selected for downloads). Music in the cloud.
Details are still sketchy and no prices have been revealed yet, but it could be another boot in the balls for Apple and their old-fashioned iTunes nonsense. It’s all going to kick off with this one we reckon…
