After the announcement of Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, the next biggest Android announcement to come out of Hong Kong was about Google Music. During Andy Rubin’s hot seat session with AllThingsD’s Walt Mossberg, Rubin eluded to the fact that not only was Google working on a music store model, but a music store model with a twist.
The Silicon Alley Insider revealed the next day that Google Music’s twist would be the ability to share songs, possibly via Google Plus, even if they had purchased them via Google’s new music store.
Late Wednesday night we learned that Google Music is definitely working on a download store, similar to that of iTunes. The Google Music screen shot above clearly shows that the number 2 option is to “shop millions of songs in Android Market”.
Currently the Android Market is home to three store fronts, apps, books and videos. The next natural step is of course, a music store.
