Google launched FREE streaming service! Just ahead of Apple Music debut

Just ahead of Apple Music debut on June 30, Google decided to show its supremacy as the company launched a free version of its music streaming service Play Music in America.

Just ahead of Apple Music debut on June 30, Google decided to show its supremacy as the company launched a free version of its music streaming service Play Music in America.

Despite the fact that Google Play Music already has a service, where subscribers have to pay monthly for listening tracks without limits, now EVERYONE in the US can listen music for FREE.

This free version uses an internet radio app Songza, bought by Google around a year ago. Besides, the playlists will have different designs for the appropriate parts of a day.

Google launches a FREE version of Google Play Music

Elias Roman, Google product manager, stated in a post that even those, who aren’t Google Play Music subscribers, will be covered by the company. He also added in the official statement:

Google Play Music now has a free, ad-supported version in the US, giving you a new way to find just the right music – and giving artists another way to earn revenue.

The new free, ad-supported version of Google Play Music is launching first in the US. It’s available on the web today, and is rolling out this week to Android and iOS.

Google was first to launch its music service, while Apple is launching its new Apple Music, which will be free for the first three months, on Tuesday June 30.

According to Google’s officials, the company hopes that people will be encouraged by that new Google Play Music to buy a $10 subscription to have a premium service. People who pay for Google Play Music have more possibilities as well as a full control over playlists with ability to manipulate, edit, rename, and save them for offline playback.

Last December there were more than 815,000 paying subscribers in the US. The paid subscription is currently available in 52 countries, while the free tier is only inside the US.
