Google launched a music service (named Google Music India) in India to help users search for legal online streams and downloads instead of pirated and illegal downloads. This helps them to fight digital piracy, which is believed to be rampant in the nation.
Earlier The WallStreet Journal reported that Google was planning to launch a music service in India. Google also launched a music search engine in the United States. Another music search initiative from Google is live in China. Anyone can use this search engine. You can use this even if you are outside India.
Search results are streamed instantly and free of charge in a pop-up Web player. You can filter results based on singers, actors and release dates. But there is no direct option to purchase music. Songs are delivered by Google’s partners in India.
