The arrival of the new Google Music service for Android users is going to give iTunes serious competition. The company announced plans for this service a while back and now they've released an exclusive look into their new venture.

Google's Music service will bring a large catalog of music thanks to several music labels that include EMI and Sony Entertainment. These companies are offering at least 13 million songs for people to stream or buy/download at their convenience. Users can upload their songs for free and listen to music anywhere even if they're offline. There will also be a feature called the Artist Hub where independent artists can create their own page at a $25 fee and sell their music with Google taking 30% from each sale.

At the moment, Google Music is only available in the U.S. Whether or not this will expand remains to be seen.
