Google Inks Deal With Warner Music Group, Now Working With All Major Labels


This morning, a very important piece of info that was tucked in all of the other Android madness, is that Google has finally inked a deal with Warner Music Group to allow for distribution of their artist’s work through Google Play. Previously, when searching for many artists that are distributed through Warner (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young, Green Day) users would come up with nothing, but thankfully, those days are soon to be over. Since the signing, Google is now officially working with all of the world’s major labels and has a much superior offering for users than they did upon first unveiling of Google Music.

As for when exactly their library of music will become available to Android users, it is said that it will come slowly but surely and more artists will be added daily. So, if you can’t get enough of that sweet Californication, just hang in there, it’s coming.

  • I don’t deal with major labels. They’re the ones ruining music by signing garbage and paying the radio stations to play the garbage until people get sick of it.
    Only label I care for right now is Hieroglyphics Imperium. {{-_-}}

    Thats great but still No AC/DC from iTunes or Google Play 🙁

    • Dinofan01

      Buy the CDs and import it to your Play Music account. Done.

        Ahhh thank you Dinofan01, great advice I never really thought about that. I’ve been wondering AC/DC won’t allow iTunes or Google play to sell their music?? They definitley want to keep thier music close to thie vest.

    eh, don’t care. i have no reason to buy inferior quality music for the same price as a CD all in the name of ‘convenience’.

    I’ll stick to ordering CDs online. same price as google play, and I get full audio quality.

    • Allen Byrd

      I’m terribly sorry sir, but you have me extremely confused.

      • TylerChappell

        I don’t think kevinc understands in the slightest what he is talking about

    • PuzzleShot

      What’s the quality of a CD? Google Music is 320kbps MP3.

    • michael arazan

      there are apps that allow music free to download, may not have everything but a good enough chunk to listen too. G tunes or mp3 search

    • Jeff Creemer

      If you’re looking for full audio quality, you better start buying vinyl LPs. They have much better audio quality than CDs, because of the digital compression CDs use.

    • Jason Naylor

      You, sir, are misguided

  • ChuckDz3

    This news is huge. I’m really happy to see more artists available to support through the Play Store!
