THIS JUST IN - GOOGLE HAVE AQUIRED SPOTIFY IN A $41M PLUS EQUITY DEAL!!!
Well that's according to an April fool's joke by none other than Digital Music News. In an article posted 2 days ago the kids at DMN thought it would be hilarious to dupe us all into thinking that the deal of the decade was on, and to be fair to them, it was a pretty good one.

The article states:

"The acquisition, first reported by the Wall Street Journal this morning, creates a clear frontrunner in the music subscription space.  It would also give Google a massive edge over competitors like Apple Music.

According to research emerging this week, Apple Music now has more unique users than any other streaming music service.  Apple’s rapid ascent may have rekindled the on-again, off-again acquisition talks."


Very believable. And to add a final sting in the tail, they ended the article with a link to said Wall Street article, which goes here.
