The Wall Street Journal reports that Google is working on their own iTunes like competitor. Here is part of what the Wall Street Journal is reporting:

Google Inc. is preparing to roll out a music download service tied to its search engine later this year, followed by an online subscription service in 2011, according to people familiar with the Internet giant's discussions with the music industry.

Google's proposals are still vague, say these people, and it's unclear whether it has struck any deals with record labels so far. But Google has been stepping up conversations about offering new music services tied to phones running its Android operating system along with the broader Web, said people who have been briefed on the talks. The launch of Google's download music store is still months away, these people said.

We know Google has a music search feature but this is clearly aimed at providing a way to download music directly to your computer or even beter, Android device. Of course,. the forums are having a field day with the news, how Google continues to dip into more and more services.
