Google is celebrating the 4th of July by offering new U.S. subscribers to its Google Play Music streaming service four free months before the usual $9.99 per month tariff kicks in. (We know it’s actually called “Independence Day,” but the whole 4-months free thing doesn’t really work with calling it that, does it? – Ed.)
A Play Music subscription offers access to a library of over 35 million tracks, and can be accessed by your Mac, your iOS device, and Android devices. The free four month deal saves subscribers $40, so it’s a pretty sweet deal.
If you sign up for The subscription, you also get access to Google’s ad-free YouTube Red service, which offers original content, and also enables offline and background playback of YouTube content on mobile devices.
The free trial is available only to U.S. users who have never signed up for Play Music or YouTube in the past. The Play subscription also gives users access to cloud storage, where they can store up to 50,000 songs form their own collection, using the Google Music Manager.
