Google Music All Access comes to UK

Google Music All Access, the company’s Spotify-rivalling music streaming service, has finally arrived here in the UK and in Europe.

The service was unveiled in the US back in May at the Google I/O event, but it was only available in its native country to start with. Three months on and Google Music All Access is now available in the UK, as well as eight European countries ( Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain), Australia and New Zealand.

As well as streaming music through a desktop browser, All Access is now available through the Google Music app on Android. As for iOS users, they’ll have to wait for a Google Music app to appear on the App Store.

Google Music All Access allows you to choose from millions of songs available to purchase outright through the standard Google Music service, and to stream them to your browser or Android device unlimited times for a fixed monthly fee.

You can also cache songs to your Android phone for offline listening, or to help preserve your monthly data allowance.

Add to that the pre-existing ability to upload up to 20,000 of your own music tracks to the cloud for storage and streaming and you have one of the more compelling music service available in the UK – especially when you factor in the price.

You can now sign up for a free 30 day trial of the All Access service, and if you commit to it before September 15 you’ll get it for just £7.99 (or €7.99) per month, rather than the usual £9.99 / €9.99.
