    Leave a Comment

    Google have launched their new streaming service ‘Google Play Music All Access’ at their annual I/O conference in San Francisco to go alongside with their existing download site which launched worldwide at the end of last year. The web giant firm is hailing it as “radio without rules”, focusing on the music discovery options the service can bring through personalised recommendations. Users can also import existing songs they already own, offering cloud based storage for up to 20,000 songs, even if these songs aren’t available on the Google Play Music services. ‘All Access’ is set to compete with existing streaming platforms such as Spotify, Xbox Music and Rdio.

    Initially, Google’s streaming service is only available in the US but is expected to roll-out globally soon. Unlike its rivals, there is no free option after an introductory 30 day trial period, but for unlimited, ad-free use via an android device or on the web there is a monthly charge of $9.99. Google are currently offering a discount for users signing up before 30th June 2013.
