According to online reports, the internet giant is already using ‘Google Music’ internally, in preparation for a public launch.
Technology resource CNET reports that the iTunes-like Google Music service could launch with the backing of major record labels.
Rumours of a Google music service were mentioned last month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where Motorola Mobility chief Sanjay Jha suggested Google was already using a music service internally.
"If you look at Google Mobile services today, there's a video service, there's a music service – that is, there will be a music service," Jha said.
Last year it was reported that Google was in conversation with major record labels about a music service. It is thought Google had circulated a proposal among labels for a music service that would include a digital download store and a subscription-based, cloud service.
Google have yet to comment on the rumours.
