We have some good news, Canadian music lovers! After nearly 2 years of being available in the US, Google is now launching their music streaming Play Music service in Canada.
The service enables the Canadian audience to get an all access pass to over 25 million songs from all of the major record label companies, as well as their own local and other indie labels. By using Play Music, users can have an ad free experience, be able to look into interactive radio stations from any song or artist, get recommendations from Google?s music team ?experts? ,or simply explore songs by genre.
This service will be available for free for 30 days. The subscription price is at $9.99 a month after the free 30 day trial, but for those users that sign up before June 30, they will be able to lock in a special launch price of $7.99 a month, enabling them to save $2.
The subscription lets users store up to 20,000 songs from their own collection online, free of charge. Users can also listen to these songs in Google?s library on their Android or iOS devices. There is also web access at play.google.com for those who are on the PC. For people who don?t have Internet service, specific albums or songs can be set, so that they are available offline for playback.
Google Play Music Product Manager, Paul Joyce, said in a blog post that: ?With today’s launch, Google Play becomes your ultimate digital entertainment destination, where you can find, enjoy and share your favourite apps, games, books, movies, magazines and music, on your Android phone or tablet?.
The Google Play Music service has received high review marks because of their simple setup paired with high quality tracks. Canadian fans that have been waiting on the service should avail of the promo now to get some extra savings, while others should check out the free 30 day trial, to see if the service fits their needs. Although the launch was delayed for a couple of years, the service is launching now so it?ll be a welcome update for Canadian fans.
