More pieces fall into place for Google Music

Google has recently registered several music and cloud themed domain names. The tip, which comes from a TechCrunch source, follows recent reports the Google's cloud-based Google Music service is nearing completion. Domain names with a music theme that have been registered include GoogleBass.com, GoogleAlto.com, GoogleSoprano.com, GoogleTenor.com. Domain names registered with a cloud theme include GoogleThunder.com, GoogleLightning.com and GoogleNebula.com.

At this point in time, none of the web domains are active although a search of the WHOIS registry indicates that Google only registered the names as recently as last Wednesday. While it is obvious that the music related domains relate to vocal registers, it is unknown at this stage whether Google plans on taking all of these domain names live, or for what purpose. The same applies for the cloud-based domain names.

Google is expected to formally announce its plans for music in the coming weeks. It has the domain names locked in an ready to launch, and it also has developed a new default Android music app that was leaked from a pre-release version ready to go.
