Google partners up with Warner Music Group, Time Inc for new Play store content

Google partners up with Warner Music Group, Time Inc for new Play store content
The Google Nexus 10 tablet and the LG Nexus 4 smartphone were not the only items on the list of announcements that the tech giant made today. The Google Play online store is getting some attention too, you know.

In particular, Google is bringing movie purchases to a number of new countries – Canada, the U.K., France, Spain, and Australia. Furthermore, Google has partnered up with Time, Inc so you can expect new magazines to be made available for purchase online: InStyle, PEOPLE, TIME, and more. 

However, that isn't all. Google announced that it has also entered into an agreement with Warner Music Group, which means that music from more artists is to land in Google Play. Warner's entire music catalog will be added, with new songs expected to come on a daily basis. Now that the latter partnership has been set in stone, Google is working with all of the world's major record labels, in addition to all the major U.S. magazine publishers. 

Keep an eye on the Google Play store as it probably won't be long until the new content shows up.

I know, right? I've been having to upload music from AmazonMP3 way too much lately.

Google is way behind. Services like iTunes, Amazon, and even Microsoft's ZunePass have already had music from WMG for years now. I don't see this as a big surprise or revelation.

Apple is way behind. Tablets like the Fire HD, Nexus 7, Gtab 7.7 have already had the small tablet form factor for years now. I don't see the mini as a big surprise or revelation.

Yeah, they are. They have a more powerful OS, but they're lacking in the entertainment department because they just started. They're catching up quickly! :]

Open doesn't mean more powerful.

Wow!!! What great news Google was not joking when it revamp the Google market to Google play store. A new VP and a new staff focus for the play store has really produced results. I am now really becoming a whole hearted Google fan. Great news. Great news indeed.
