Google won’t admit it, but we know a cloud-based music service is coming from them. Aside from confirmations from anonymous sources, the settings in the leaked music player for Android smartphones alludes to cloud-based music streaming as well. Now Google has registered a few domain names for websites that are music related.
According to TechCrunch, the following domains were registered by Google this week.
Some of the domains are associated with music, and the other half are related to clouds. Nebula is defined as “A visible, thinly spread cloud of interstellar gas and dust.” Nebula is a bit of a stretch, but there’s still mention of a cloud. Nebula is also the name of a cloud computing project from NASA.
Google Music is a simple enough name for me. It’s not unusual for a company to register several domains. A lot of the time, nothing comes of it. These domains are registered as a way to keep options open.
This is getting silly Google. Just announce your service already.
