Google Play Music Is Now Available in Canada



 Last year in November, Google Play Music app for iOS was released as a free download in the App Store across 20 countries around the globe, leaving out Canada at the app’s initial launch. Today however, Google’s music service, that gives users an unlimited pass to 25 million songs on all their devices, has been released in Canada and the official app is now live in the Canadian App Store.

“Google Play Music lets you create an ad-free, interactive radio station from any song or artist you love. You can add, remove or re-order your station and see what’s coming next. Or you can browse recommendations from our expert music team and explore songs by genre. The “Listen Now” tab puts artists and radio stations we think you’ll like front and center so you can start listening the minute you open your library.”

Those who aren’t familiar with the service, the free version of Google Play Music allows users to listen to any of the songs they have backed up to Google’s cloud, while a monthly ‘All Access plan’ gives users the ability to stream or download anything in Google’s catalog to their mobile devices. Google allows storage of up to 20,000 songs for free online. Also, paid customers can create a custom ad-free radio station from any artist, song, or album, and skip as many songs as they like.

You can try the service today for a special launch price of $7.99 a month and you get the first 30 days free. Regular pricing for those who sign up after June 30 will be $9.99 a month with the first 30 days free.

    So googles version of iTunes radio?

  • Pretty much

  • Anthony ?

    Looks like an interesting option, but the fact that you have to actually upload your iTunes library to their storage as opposed to them matching it for you sucks, especially in the land of crappy upload speeds…

    Gonna have to take my laptop to work to get it done, no way I’m going to have it sucking up all my bandwidth for the next week while it pushes 30+ GB of music to the locker.

    Google Play Music All Access came out May, 2013 and iTunes Radio came out Sept. 2013…. Spotify came out in 2008… So what? Why does it always have to be Google copying Apple? Or Apple copying Google? Just see it for what it is, another streaming music service that certain people will prefer. Big deal.
