Warner Music Groupby Rhian Jones

Warner Music Group is the first label reported to have struck a licensing deal with Google for the two music services the search giant is said to be launching later this year.

The reported subscription services will be offered through its YouTube online video platform and another via its cloud based service Google Play.

Negotiations with Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and other labels are also apparently underway to secure an agreement.

Google’s efforts to build an on-demand music service was first reported in February and has since been followed up with a report that detailed plans for the YouTube service.
