Google Play Music iOS release live: All Access included for a month

Today Google has released its own Google Play Music app for iOS, working on the iPhone and iPod touch with a unique iPad version coming in the near future. At the moment you’ll find this version of Google Play Music missing the “I’m feeling lucky” option to roll the dice and listen to music based on your previous listening action, but essentially everything else is ready to roll.

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 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).

YouTube tipped to launch its own music streaming service

YouTube is rumored to be gearing up to launch a subscription-based music streaming service. The video-streaming juggernaut is hoping to become a fully-fledged media juggernaut in the future it seems. The service is said to have a free model which allows users to listen to all the music they'd like, but with ads popping up from time to time. It's no different than when ads pop-up before/while you're watching your favorite YouTube videos. A paid subscription would of course remove the ads for an uninterrupted music-listening experience.

Earlier this year we saw the folks at Apple reveal a service they called iTunes Match, bringing on a reason to import your CD-bound music collection into their annual-fee cloud for iOS devices. Now Google Play has revealed that not only will they be continuing their own free cloud storage for music service, they'll be boosting up the tune quality as well to 320-Kbps (just so long as they've got music that matches your own.) Best part of this whole situation is that if you've already got your music uploaded now, Google is automatically matching your music right now without any additional effort from you!
