Google’s subscription music service app – Google Play Music – has arrived on the iPhone, some six months after it was initially promised. Google is also offering a free one-month trial of its subscription service.
Google Play Music arrives in the App Store this morning with most of the features that its Android counterpart does, done up in a style that feels native to iOS while remaining familiar to anyone who has used the service on another platform. And while much of what the app offers on iOS has been available on Spotify and Rdio for years, Google has invested enough in helping users discover new music to make their version worth a look.
The new app gives user access to play any of the songs they have uploaded to Google’s scan and match service – free, and gives access to 20 million more songs for $9.99 per month. As we mentioned before, Google offers a one-month free trial of the subscription service.
Subscribing give you the ability to stream or download anything in Google’s 20 million strong music catalog to your device. You can also create custom radio stations from any artist, song or album, skip as many songs as you like, and listen ad-free.
Popular Android app features that are missing from the iPhone app include the “I Feel Lucky” radio station, and purchasing of songs and subscriptions from within the app, due to Apple’s App Store In-App Purchase requirements.
Google Play Music is available FREE in the App Store for the iPhone. [DIRECT LINK]
