Google Play Music app updated with new UI for iOS 7 and other improvements

Folks trying out Google’s recently-released Play Music app for iOS will be happy to hear that a new version popped up late last night. The update, which brings the app to 1.1.0.988, brings about a refreshed UI and a handful of new features.

Among the new features is support for ‘I’m feeling lucky’ radio, which builds an instant playlist based on your listening habits, and other new radio options. Users now have access to Genre radio stations and the ability to search for them…

Official Google Play Music app finally hits iOS with free 30-day trial

Nearly 6 months after announcing that it would be coming in ‘a few weeks,’ Google has finally launched an official Google Play Music app for iPhone. The software allows you to use both Google’s All Access and standard music services.
All Access is similar to Spotify and other like-services, allowing users to listen to unlimited songs and create custom radio stations. And the standard service lets you upload 20,000 of your own songs to the cloud for playback anywhere…

Official Google Music app expected to launch on iOS later this month

It’s been more than two years since Google unveiled its Music service, and the company has yet to launch an official iOS client. Sure, there’s been plenty of third-party apps, and a web app, but nothing native directly from Google.

But according to a new report from Engadget, that could change very soon. Citing sources familiar with the company’s plans, the outlet claims that Google is testing a Music app internally, and plans to launch it later this month…

Google: All Access streaming coming to iOS in coming weeks

Earlier this month, the search monster at the Google I/O developers conference unveiled its new $9.99 a month subscription service called Google Play Music All Access. It offers streaming from Google’s catalog of “millions of tracks” and supports curated playlists, radio stations and ability to remove unwanted songs.

While Google initially said the service will run on Android devices and on the web, there was no mention of iOS whatsoever. During today’s interview at the D11 conference, Google’s new Android lead Sundar Pichai confirmed that Google Play Music All Access is coming to iOS in the next few weeks…

gMusic updated with support for Google’s new All Access music service

I’ve been keeping an eye on the gMusic Twitter account all week. Last year the app was first to iOS with support for Google’s cloud-based Music storage, and I knew it’d be the same way this year with support for Google’s new All Access subscription service.

That support arrived today in the form of gMusic 6.0. And in addition to ‘All Access’ access, the update brings a number of useful playback and management features like the ability to create and play radio stations, and to search for/ add music to your library…

Google takes on Spotify and iTunes with $9.99 music streaming service

The Internet giant kicked off its annual Google I/O developer conference with a three-hour long (!) keynote at San Francisco’s Moscone West, the same venue Apple reserved for its own five-day event next month. During the keynote, Google executives announced a much-rumored streaming music service that’s bound to give headache to the likes of Spotify, Rdio and Pandora.

Dubbed somewhat confusingly Google Play Music All Access, Google’s Android executive Chris Yerga noted on stage that “music unites us” and is “universal”. And with computing and mobile devices intertwined into our lives “there’s potential to bring that joy together.” Go past the fold for full details…
