Google and Spotify have been in talks to bring the music streaming service to the search giant’s flagship handset, the Nexus One, according to Tech Crunch.
If the source is to be believed, the plan would be to package in an updated version of the Spotify Android app, optimised for the Nexus One’s Android 2.1 operating system.
In what could be a massive development, the source also claims that Google have offered to pay the licensing fees that are so far preventing Spotify from getting the backing of major US record labels. It could lead to the free service that has proved so popular in Europe finally reaching the States.
It’s unlikely that any deal will be officially agreed upon by the time of the Nexus One’s grand unveiling later on today, but it’s definitely a development that Tech Digest will be keeping a close eye on.
