Google Play Music All Access To Land On iOS
Service arriving in “next couple of weeks”
Google’s recently announced Play Music All Access will be landing on iOS devices in the coming weeks, a senior representative has confirmed.
The news was unveiled at this week’s D11 conference and, according to AllThingsD, will see Google promote the same cross-platform philosophy as with its other products.
Speaking at the conference Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Android, Chrome and Google apps said that sharing content was “in Google’s DNA” and that it wanted to “make it work for everyone in the world”.
“We brought Google Now to iOS. A couple of weeks from now we will launch Google Play Music All Access for iOS, the teams are working like crazy to do it.”
Having launched the service at this month’s I/O conference, the absence of an iOS variant did raise a few eyebrows, but it now seems this will be remedied sooner rather than later. Although a concrete release isn’t forthcoming, it certainly appears it’ll land before June is out.
Google Play Music All Access had been heavily rumoured before the company’s conference, but didn’t disappoint with an impressive list of features and record labels on board. At just $9.99 per month for unlimited streaming, it will likely trouble Spotify for its music audience.
Apple is also thought to be working on its own internet radio service, although few details currently exist concerning its cost or availability outside of iOS.
