Google's new music streaming service called All Access has been officially announced. It will cost $9.99 a month, or $7.99 if you sign up for the free trial by June 30th. It is currently only available for the U.S. with more countries coming at a later date.
Another significant bit of news from Google today is that they have officially announced their own music streaming service called All Access. Google promises millions of songs will be available from the get-go, along with the music that you already have in your library.
They’ve also used their knowledge about searching to help you discover new music by allowing you to explore songs and albums based on your tastes, or even create a radio station that is tailored specifically to your preferences in music.
As for availability and pricing, if you live in the U.S. you’ll be able to sign on for a 30-day free trial. The monthly subscription cost is $9.99 but if you sign up for a 30-day trial by June 30th, that cost will lower to $7.99 a month. Whether you’re interested in it right now or not, the smart thing would be to do the trial anyway so if somewhere down the line you decide you want the service, you’ll have the lower price available to you. Google has stated that availability for more countries will be announced at a later date.
The updated version of the Google Play Music app is available for download at this link right now.
