Our friends across the border have something to be happy about today. After apps, games and books which were followed by movies and magazines, Google today opened up its music portal for Canadian users. As of today Google Play Music All Access is live in Canada giving users access to over 25 million songs across all their devices.
If 25 million songs being available for on-demand streaming aren’t enough Google also lets users merge their collection with its collection. 20,000 songs can be stored for free in the cloud and can be streamed via the All Access catalogue on any device. Specific albums and playlists can even be pinned so that they’re available offline.
In Google Play Music users can create an ad-free radio station from song or artist. They can also browse recommendations from the music team as well as explore songs by genre. The “Listen Now” tab brings artists and radio stations front and center that the app believes the user will like.
The company has followed the same pricing model for Canada. Play Music All Access subscription is currently being offered for $7.99 per month with a free 30 day trial. Only those who sign up before June 30th can claim this price. Others who sign up after this date will pay $9.99 per month with the first 30 days free.
