Just ahead of the Apple Music streaming service launch, Google has announced they are now offering free Play Music streaming – with ads – for users in the U.S. who aren’t currently Google Play Music subscribers.
The service gives music lovers a way to listen to curated radio stations, an integration from their Songza purchase awhile ago, which offer a wide selection of various songs based on genre, mood, decade, or activity. Users of the free streaming service can also search for their favourite artist, album, or song and create a station based on similar music.
Google is hoping that people who use the streaming service will subscribe to their All Access music pass which will allow them to also play their music offline, create their own playlists, and listen to any of their 30 million song library without restrictions. The All Access pass also includes ad-free, offline access, and other features for YouTube music videos as well.
