The deal has been rumored for a little bit, and today Google announced that it has agreed to purchase streaming music service Songza for an undisclosed sum.

I'm a huge Songza user, let's hope this gives an edge to Google to compete in the music streaming industry and not ruin Songza to cease and desist.

Hopefully this makes for much better Radio stations on Google Music. They are pretty basic right now and need an overhaul. The names of some of the Songza activities are hilarious and oddly specific.

I found Songza years ago because Pandora didn't work in Mexico but Songza did. I hope they keep the international thing going. I"m not sure if Play music already does or not.

They should first enable Google Play Music in all countries, they are too late. All the people have been rocking iTunes since 3 or 4 years in Turkey.
