Google is continuing to come out with more services that compete with current popular services.  Google recently came out with Google+ that is competing with Facebook.

We’ll see if Google Plus is here to stay, but now we have Google Music. Google Music is still in the beta phase, but you can request an invitation by going to the Google Music beta website

When you first get Google Music you can download free music with songs including 100 years by Five For Fighting, Creep by TLC, Drops of Jupiter by Train, So Emotional by Whitney Houston, and a lot more.  Then Google Music will prompt you to enter where your music files are located on your computer.  Your songs are then retrieved, which can also be taken from iTunes, and adds them to your Google Music library.

Google Music is very similar to iTunes and is competing with them for the large market for portable music.  Google Music allows you to play your music on any Android device.  It can be on your computer, tablet, or phone.  Google Music stores all the songs online so your music and play lists are available anywhere and with any device.  You can also select specific playlist to be available to you if you are offline, so you can listen to music anytime.

Google continues to grow and offers more and more services for free.  Google is becoming the one stop place to do anything you want to do on the internet.  Google has a great search engine, email service, Google Voice, Google Plus, and now Google Music.  Who knows the next service that Google will offer.  It is hard to see Google slowing down anytime soon, but one has to wonder if they are getting too powerful.  What do you think, is it good that Google is doing so much or is it better to use different companies and internet marketing solutions for different services?
