Google Launches Monthly Subscription Music Service


Google gets into the music business, with the launch of a music service over the cloud. The service, with a rather elaborate name – Google Play Music All Access, is a monthly music subscription service that lets users listen to songs across devices. Google Play Music All Access is similar to Spotify, and allows cloud storage of personal music, like iTunes Match. 

With Google Play Music All Access,  you can listen to music straight from your browser. You will need to download the Music Manager application from Google to upload your own music. You can store 20,000 songs for free in the cloud.

Google Play Music All Access service costs $9.99 a month, and is free for the first month. If you start your trial by June 30, the service will cost $7.99 a month.
