Google Play Music headed to iOS

Today in a much more official manner than we've been experiencing thus far, Google Music has been announced to be coming to iOS. It's been announced by Google's Android head Sundar Pichai just this morning at the D11 conference where he's also dropped the bomb: the HTC One Google Edition.

Google Play Music All Access hits the iPhone through gMusic

This week the folks at the app called gMusic have pushed through an update to include Google Play Music All Access for iOS users - iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch included.

Google Play Music update quietly drops support for Nexus Q

Google Play Music received a big update yesterday during Google I/O when the company launched its All Access music streaming service (we even got a quick hands-on session).

Google announced their own music streaming subscription service today during Google I/O, and while it's essentially nothing that we haven't seen before, it provides Google users who are deep into the company's ecosystem the opportunity to escape Spotify or Rdio and come back home to Google where the service is integrated with other Google apps. Let's have a quick look at the latest competitor in streaming music.
