Google Play Music All Access is for the first time available in Canada. After nearly two years of streaming music to listeners in the 50 states below and next door, Google has finally decided to launch its music streaming service that streams 25 million songs and a user's personal library on a smartphone or Android and iOS device. The same service that users have enjoyed in the US has made its way north. That means users can listen to on-demand songs, upload up to 20,000 songs and get higher-quality tracks, and create personalized radio stations that tailor the playlist based on feedback.
A temporary sale price delivers all of those features for $7.99 per month for anyone who signs up by June 30. Anyone who signs up afterward will pay $9.99 a month. The same offer was made to US buyers when All Access launched at Google I/O 2013. Canadians have long waited to get the chance to have the same media options but issues related to music licensing kept that from happening even as Google expanded internationally to other countries. Android and iOS users no can download the apps to start listening today with a free 30-day trial.
