Google brings All Access music subscription service to iPhone

Nov 20, 2013 by Salvador Rodriguez

Half a year after launching for Android, Google Play Music All Access is now available to iPhone users.

An app for Google Play Music became available for download for iPhone users on Friday. The app gives users to All Access, Google's , and also lets them stream music they own that they have uploaded onto Google's cloud.

All Access is a rival to other music subscription services, notably Spotify and Rdio. But unlike those other services, iPhone users have not been able to use All Access on their devices until now.

To promote the service, Google says new users can get a free 30-day trial of the service. After that, All Access costs $9.99 per month.

That's a nice introduction to the service, but it isn't as sweet of a deal as Google offered Android users when All Access launched earlier this year. For the first month of its existence, Google said users could sign up and receive a special price of $7.99. The tech giant won't be offering that special price to new iOS users.

Google Play Music is available for from the Apple App Store.
