While browsing through the jobs at Google I stumbled across something new -- postings targeted at future "Google Audio" employees. Some of the positions they are looking to fill are: Customer Support Technician, Senior Sales Technical Support, Provisioning Manager, Media Account Manager, Business Analyst, Account Executive.
What could "Google Audio" be though? Maybe it will be the music search/store offering that has been heavily speculated about recently. In a move that could add some truth to these rumors, Google held a meeting that only top music industry executives were invited to attend on March 30th. Google Audio could very well be the product name for this future service.
It could also be the name for an audio version of AdWords. It's not a matter of if Google will launch this service, but when -- they already own the technology through the recent acquisition of dMarc Broadcasting. It will be interesting to see how successful radio advertising will be considering the slow response to Google's Publication Ads experiment.
