Google Takes on Spotify and iTunes With New Unlimited ‘All Access’ Streaming Service

Google unveiled an impressive new subscription music service today at their Google I/O conference keynote, offering unlimited music streaming, complete with playlists and music suggestions based on songs already in your collection, and full access to Google Play Music’s entire catalog.

The service is called Google Play Music All Access, and in addition to offering users access to any song from the library, the new service allows you to create customized streaming radio stations with any albums, songs, genres, etc that you choose.

9to5Google offers additional details:

Google execs focused on showing off curated playlists but also made a note of pointing out a “radio” feature that will automatically create an endless radio station based on the song you’re currently listening to. The service will also allow users to search for a particular song or view the “playlist” of a radio station to remove unwanted songs.

Also included is a feature called “Listen Now” that will provide quick access to recently listened to songs, customized radio stations based on your preferences, and recommendations for new releases from artists you like.

The service is priced at just $10 per month, with a 30 day free trial – and early birds who sign up by June 30th can sign up for $8 per month. The service will officially go love later today, and can be accessed from  Google Play Music once it goes live. Unfortunately, the service will initially be limited only to the U.S.
