It’s been a long time coming, but Mountain View has finally made Google Play Music available for folks with Apple devices. The cloud-based service was earlier this year doled out for Android devices, and boasts of the facility to provide you with access to 20,000 of your uploaded tracks, create playlists and share songs with friends, all while syncing between various devices.
Upon downloading Google Play Music through the App Store, you will also receive free subscription for a month of its All Access features. Otherwise available in exchange of $9.99/month, this streaming service enables you to listen to unlimited songs, create custom radio stations, get recommendations based on your tastes and much more, including a few surprises here and there.
On the other hand, the free version of the service allows you to add a maximum of 20,000 of your own songs using your Mac, Windows or Linux machines. And apart from allowing you to listen to that music on your mobile devices, Google Play Music also lets you enjoy it through any browser with a simple login of your Google Id.
Sadly, the service is only available in a total of 21 countries right now.These include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
And while there’s no word on when Google Play Music will be dished out for other nations, 9to5Mac has revealed more details about the app. Apparently, there’s a special iPad version being developed at the moment, along with better song algorithms and more.
