Google unveils $10-a-month ‘All Access’ music plan
SAN FRANCISCO— Google is unveiling a streaming music service called All Access that blends songs users have already uploaded to their online libraries with millions of other tracks for a $10 monthly fee.
The service puts Google in competition with popular paid subscription plans like Spotify and Rhapsody and free music services like Pandora.
You can search by genre and see recommendations by Google’s curators. You can listen to any track right away, or switch to a “radio” format that creates a playlist of songs that you might like.
You can adjust the playlist as you go.
All Access will be available in the U.S. on Wednesday and comes with a 30-day free trial. If you start the trial by June 30, the monthly fee will drop to $8.
