Where form meets function

Google launched a new music streaming service called Google Play Music: All Access at the Google I/O developer conference earlier today. For $9.99 USD a month, users of All Access will be able to listen to “millions of tracks” in the Google Play store in addition to their own personal music libraries. “We set out to build a music service that doesn’t just give you access to great music, but guides you to the music you want to hear. Google Play Music: All Access is a uniquely Google approach to a subscription music service,” said Google engineering director Chris Yerga.

All Access features expert-curated playlists that subscribers can access and add to their own libraries or create “radio stations.” U.S. subscribers will get a 30-day free trial—if you sign up for the free trial before July 30, the monthly subscription price drops to $7.99 USD. Google Play Music: All Access is available for Android-based smartphones and tablets, and there’s also a web browser version for laptops and desktops.
