Google Music will predominatly be featured in Android 3.0.

Google will be putting its Simplify Media acquisition to use soon, if recent news is to be believed. Simplify Media was a music-streaming service that was picked up by Google in the grand scheme of getting dirty into the digital music business.

In an interview with an Israeli financial newspaper Calcalist, Google VP of Engineer Gaurav Jain has gone on record as stating that the search giant will be launching its much-rumored music service before the end of this year.

The music service, rumored-ly titled ‘Google Music’ will debut in Q4 2010 alongside Android 3.0 Gingerbread. According to Jain, mobile will play a huge part in Google’s strategy to promote its music service.

The news comes a week after rumors hit the internet fan that Apple were on the verge of revealing a cloud-based version of iTunes that will allow customers to stream music directly from their library onto their devices.

The war for digital music is about to get bloody. Where is that Micheal Jackson eating popcorn animation image when you need?
