Google’s music offering is nearing launch according to numerous reports including the New York Times.
The MP3 store is expected to have ties to the company’s growing social network, Google+, allowing users to share the music they buy with friends/followers. There is also supposed to be a cloud-based storage component.
Reportedly, EMI Music is close to agreeing to license its catalog, but NYT reports that the other majors are not yet on board with Google Music.
