At its developer conference in San Francisco 5/15, Google unveiled Google Play Music All Access, a monthly music subscription service with access to millions of songs that joins its Google Play music store and locker; and the Google Play game services with real-time multiplayer.
The company showed a searchable user interface with recommendations called “Explore.” Any track previewed on the store, can be instantly turned into a “radio station,” according to a Barron’s report.
A feature called “Listen Now” combines one’s purchased music with the radio feed in one interface. The service is live and will cost $9.99 per month in the US, or $7.99 for those who sign up by June 30th.
Google referred to the service as the best of both worlds, combining personal music with Google recommendations.
