Google is close to launching digital music store ‘with a twist’

During a sit-down talk with All Things D’s Walt Mossberg, Google’s SVP of Mobile, Andy Rubin, confirmed a rumor about Google launching a digital music store for its Music Beta cloud music service. As you know, Google Launched Music Beta back in May during Google I/O. The service allows you to upload you to store your music library in the cloud, and makes it available to you from anywhere, on a computer or your mobile device. The only thing missing from Music Beta is the ability to purchase songs.

Last week, a report surfaced indicating that Google was in the process of finally launching a music store for Music Beta, a feature that many people have been requesting. Today, Andy Rubin pretty much confirmed that rumor. According to Andy, he feels that Google is close to offering a music acquisition service. Andy also added that Google’s Music store will have a little twist, and that it won’t just be selling $0.99 songs.

What can this little twist be? At the moment, we have no idea. It could be something big, or it could be something small.
