Google Play Music All Access now available in Europe, iOS app still yet to be seen

While we still await the promised arrival of Google Play Music All Access for the iPhone and iPad, there is at least good news for European music fans interested in the service. Google has pushed out the launch of All Access to a further 9 countries, all European, and is offering a discounted subscription rate for early adopters just as they did in the U.S. Alex Dobie of Android Central outlines the plans:

The sign-up process works just as it does in other territories — sign up for a 30-day trial in the first month or so (in this case, before Sep. 15) and you'll pay only only £7.99 or €7.99 for the life of the subscription. That's compared to the regular price of £9.99/€9.99.

Despite no official app from Google, there are a couple of ways to get hold of your All Access music on iOS, including the pretty impressive gMusic. Back at D11, Google's Sundar Pichai confirmed they were "working like crazy" on bringing All Access to iOS and that it should launch "in a few weeks." That was back in May, so that few weeks has since become over 2 months with no further clues as to when it may finally arrive.

But, since you get a 30-day free trial to see if it's for you, there's plenty of reason to try it out. Signups can be done at the Google Play Music homepage. I've got a subscription and I quite like it, though I'll be waiting on the iOS app before making my mind up completely over whether to keep it. If you're trying it for the first time, or even a long standing user, drop me a line in the comments and let me know what you think.

Google Play Music All Access now available in Europe, iOS app still yet to be seen


Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed that the official Google Play Music All Access app hasn't been released yet. I'm an early adopter of Google Music in general and would love to see the official app make it out. gMusic works well, but get the app out already, Google.

I like using Google Play Music locally(offline).
Because there is a nice app that enables me to set album artwork as wallpaper automatically!

You can find it by searching
