According to the Financial Times and The Verge, Google is said to be talking to music labels about licensing deals for a subscription based music service that will supposedly launch in the third quarter. If these deals do pan out in the end then Google would offer a paid monthly music service for users who did not wish to purchase individual tracks. There would also be a free selection of music offered for listening but with advertisements.
If this paid music service does come to light it could really help Google out with the available music in the play store. It would make them eligible to compete with services like Spotify which then compel music labels to make their content available on the play store.
I personally hope this music service comes to light because I would definitely be using it rather than purchasing every song I want individually. All we can do now is wait and see what happens in the third quarter.
