Google Play Music for iOS 7 gets feature parity with Android

It’s only been out for a month, but Google recently updated its Play Music app for iOS 7 to bring it up to the level of the original Android version.

Version (really, Google?) adds a new iOS 7-friendly UI to the Google Play Music app, as well as a couple of welcome new features.

Chief among these is ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ radio – an automated playlist that forms based on your recent listening habits. You also get themed playlists based on your music library and those you’ve applied the Thumbs Up rating to.

Those who’ve signed up to the All Access subscription service also get access to genre radio stations. Speaking of genre, you can now search by it in the iOS Google Play Music app.

Essentially, the Google Play Music app on iOS now has feature parity with the Android version.

Google first launch Google Play Music just over two years ago, and has massively expanded its feature set since then.

Initially a simple iTunes-like MP3 store with the added ability of being able to upload 20,000 for your own tracks to Google’s servers for free, Google Play Music eventually picked up a Spotify-like All Access premium subscription service that allows you to stream unlimited music from its 20 million tracks for £9.99 per month.
