Google Music LogoGoogle hosted a big music event yesterday to announce the new Google Music features.

In short they include:

  • Discover Music
  • Purchase Music
  • Share Music via Google +
  • Listen to Music

Prior, Google didn't have a good way of buying music and the sharing wasn't that great either.

There is also now an "Artist hub" where artists can distribute their music for the price they determine or for free.

Google has tried many flavors of Google Music. In 2005 they had Google Music Search and in 2009 they displayed music results in the search results. But now none of that is in the search results. I assume it will come soon enough - I am not worried, it is a way for Google to monetize.
