Google Play Music All Access crosses the border to Canada

Google Play Music for iPhone

Google's Play Music All Access subscription service is now streaming in Canada! By signing up to All Access, you can get a healthy cloud library of tunes, as well as your own private collection. Us Canadians are used to these sorts of services taking awhile to get up here, but it sure is welcome. As an early bird promotion, Google is cutting the normal subscription rate from $9.99 to $7.99, and tossing in 30 days of service for free. You'll also get Chromecast support as usual, plus, as of recently, you can stream out to Sonos.

Of course, Google Play isn't the only music service available on Android — be sure to check out our comparison of DoubleTwist, Google Play Music, Poweramp, Shuttle Music Player, and Equalizer+, as well as iMore's fantastic cloud music services show-down. Andrew also had some great stuff to say about All Access, if you're looking for thoughts and impressions. Canadians, are you interested in signing up to Google Play All Access? Which services do you subscribe to now?

Head over to Google Play Music to sign up!

$9.95 a month?! For what is essentially a bad free radio station, and the ability to save your tunes in the cloud for easy access? Only a fool would go for an offer like that IMO.

I don't even think iTunes match is a good deal, even though it's the exact same thing for $2.00 a month.

What's missing from the service that would make it a good deal?

nnimkar says:

Ummm.. you missing the biggest feature. Play any of the 20million songs any time you want as much as you want. No restrictions. The same price as Rdio.. but with online locker as well.

Wreckus says:

Really tempting to switch from RDIO to google music. any opinions?

CylonJason says:

I'm tempted to switch from Rdio, but I still don't see the Google Play Music app in the app store, so I'm a bit reluctant. It is supposed to be on mobile, not just web is it now?

CylonJason says:

Ok, the app is finally available. I tried it, but will be sticking with Rdio.

Wreckus says:

Update, 7.99 when you subscribe now. There is a 30 day free trial too. Switch from RDIO.
