Google Music store screenshots leaked?

With rumors that Google will finally announce its Google Music download store sometime later this week hitting the Internet, there's also activity on the screenshot front. The Spanish language web site TecnoDroidVe.com has posted up what it claims are images showing the user interface of Google Music running in the Android Marketplace. Google recently revamped the Marketplace to allow downloads of movie rentals and eBook purchases along with app downloads.

It looks like Google will offer users a free "song of the day" selection daily from the Music section of the marketplace, if these screenshots leaks are correct. It also looks like the overall user interface will blend seamlessly with the revamped UI of the Android marketplace. Pricing for songs also seems to vary if the images are correct, although the prices shown in the screenshots may just be placeholders.

Google is expected to reveal the new service in a press conference that will be held on Wednesday, but at the moment it's not clear if the music store will also launch that same day or if it will be released sometime later. Offering Android smartphone and tablet users an easy way to download music tracks will certainly help Android to compete with Apple's iTunes service. However, it's not yet clear if all of the major music publishers will sign on to support the new Google Music Store.

Thanks to the forums who alerted us to the screenshots

I have the option to buy music through Spotify. The Get button next to each song title?

Is that a European thing? I don't see that at all. I'm in the U.S.

Oh my god, that looks pretty freaking ugly, the color selection is terrible and it does look all bloated, wtf is going on?

Typical Apple Troll posts. Go back to your shiny overpriced little screened boring iphone.

Why would they be "Apple Troll" posts? Did anyone above even mention anything Apple related? You yourself are just being a troll.

Nobody mentioned Apple. I guess we see where you stand.

They don't have to mention apple to know that its a typical "**** over every other platform" post from apple fanboys. Perhaps they feel threatened by Google's continued innovation in the mobile sector.

LMAO at the previous comments. I wonder why so much Google hate? Perhaps some other articles made them mad.

Because google copied from metro several times... and if google does it, it's all ok because.... well, it's google.

Play and pause.
Very Zune/WP7 Music hub-esque.

the universal play button that has been around who knows how long inside a circle. Really? now I have heard it all.

Windows Media Player
iTunes
Amazon online mp3 player
Samsung Kies
Winamp
doubletwist player
Poweramp

Just a few other media players that use circular buttons with icons on, but no.. they have to be copying Metro because it fits your agenda.

I'M the retard? Hahaha

Not circular buttons.... but minimal style for circular buttons. And they copied it from zune.

Windows Media Player has an orb, not a circle.
iTunes, also an orb.
Amazon, again an orb.
Winamp has a square button.
As for the rest, they aren't similar either.

Microsoft was first with the minimal UI style that is Metro. Google has been copying it constantly as of late. First they copied the Metro Pivot UI for their new Android Market app, and now they're copying the icon style of WP7. Not to mention the Google homepage and Gmail. It's just too much to be a coincidence.

Amazon's button looks almost exactly the same as the one in the new Google market, and Amazon has been using it a hell of a lot longer than Microsoft.

Just to reiterate.. It's almost EXACTLY the same as the Google one.

Minimal buttons are nothing new in audio players, or to indicate audio player functions. You would have a case if they used those circular buttons for lots of different functions/apps, but until then... You're clutching at straws.
