Google has finally released Google Play Music for iPhone, bringing their music service at long last to iOS in an official native app. The app had previously been expected to launch "a few weeks" after the D11 Conference back in May. Now, just twenty-four weeks later, it has arrived.
Google Play Music features simple sign-in for quick access to your account, and gives you access to the songs that you've uploaded to the services, or you can opt to pay $9.99 per month for Google Music All Access, which gives you access to unlimited listening to millions of tracks. The app lets you create All Access radio stations based on artists, albums, and individual songs. Google Play Music for iPhone supports streaming audio via both AirPlay and Google's Chromecast.
You can also download music from either your personal collection or All Access on to your device, or stream it. You can choose to limit streaming to Wi-Fi only, or allow for cellular data use. If you want to stream your music over cellular, you can decide from Low, Normal, and High quality to control how much data you use.
Google Play Music is available now as a free download for iPhone. If you've been wanting to try Google's music service, now might be the perfect time to do so. All Access comes with a free months trial subscription to anyone who hasn't tried the service yet. We'll be posting a full review over the weekend, but for now, if you download and take it for a spin, let me know what you think to it.
