Infographic: Can Google Play Beat iTunes and Amazon?

Could social sharing through Google+ and the rise of the Android give Google Play an advantage over iTunes and Amazon?

This infographic breaks down the online music market with a side-by-side comparison of the leading app stores.

Even with 500 million members, Google’s social network is still a limited playing field for Google Play, when Amazon and iTunes both link to Facebook, which has more than one billion users.

However, Google customers can share entire tracks with their friends on Google+, while iTunes and Amazon users can only “like” a track or share a link on Facebook.

Google Play is also reaching out to artists with the option to upload their music directly to the site for a one-time fee, which appears to be a simpler price structure than iTunes’ or Amazon’s.

While Apple’s iTunes continues to dominate the market, Google Play has the potential to grow as more people purchase Android phones, which come standard with the Google Play app store.
