Google Play Music All Access: Sign up by June 30 for special $8/mo rate!

google-music-website-listing

Google Play Music All Access was announced at Google I/O 2013. It’s an awesome service that gives you all the music Google has to offer for a monthly fee. It also comes with customizable radio channels. The current price is $7.99 a month for unlimited music streaming and radio, which is a great price considering how much music they have to offer.

At the end of June, however, the price will be raised to $9.99 a month. If you sign up before the June 30, your rate will be locked in at $8 a month. If you’re serious about using All Access, then we highly suggest you sign up now and keep the subscription going.

Signing up will give you a 30-day free trial, so if you don’t like it, it won’t cost you a cent. Go try it out. If you do like it, you can take advantage of the discounted rate. Are any of you planning to keep using it?

    Been a subscriber with the special $7.99 rate since it was announced and made available. I have not had extensive experience with rival services so I can’t compare it to them but I have been enjoying it so far and unless things get dramatically worse, I will continue being a subscriber.

    I wont be cancelling any time soon. At 18 million Google is only 10% behind Spotify, for a new launch thats actually quite impressive. Also I found out that you can take Google All Access music offline permanently via http://songspout.com

      Nice!!! now i can add songs from GPMAA to my iPhone library with cover art and higher quality than the iTunes store for allot less!

  • Johnathan Prochaska

    I actually like the service and decided to keep it. I just it the entire day at work, when I’m in the car or at the gym. I like that there are radio stations (which do learn your habits very quickly) but if there is a specific song you want to hear all of a sudden, you have the option to play that song instantly. I can add the songs to my library and have them marked for offline listening so no data is wasted.

    It works surprisingly well and I think google has used some of my search history for songs and music videos for their recommended radio stations and tracks. Very cool.

      *use it

    Stupid Canada, if it ever does make it here it will cost $15 and have 1/10th of the content…YAY for the CRTC.

      I’ll trade you my All Access for your universal healthcare.

        Lol touche!

        I could only imagine what it would be like if the CRTC has any input into our healthcare system………

    I use to have slacker radio for 2 years but after Google released their music service I jumped and never looked back great service all around..what’s next google a Netflix like service?

      I dream of a future where I can stream Googflix over Google Fiber and Time Warner is reduced to slinging nothing but PPV wrestling and softcore porn.

  • Kimbo

    I have both GPMAA and Spotify, so I’ve been able to compare the two for a while. I even have radio stations on both based on the same song. Spotify is a bit better with variety, but overall GPMAA holds its own. What I really, really like about GPMAA is that I can see the list of songs that are going to be played and change things around, and I can also go back in the list to previous songs.

    The only thing that confuses me is how GPMAA uses the up and down thumbs for songs. Songs that I thumbs down will still occasionally show up in my queue, and I have no idea if thumbs upping a song influences the song choices GPMAA makes for a radio station. Does anyone know?

    Money well spent. I’m keeping my subscription.

  • Trey

    Its like a Netflix for music. It has nearly everything I could think of (the Dogs album artwork showed up but wrong content and no Nemesis). I have found it useful for discovering new content. It has filters based on genre and subgenre. A New Releases section. Suggested playlists. They really put some thought into this and as a music lover I absolutely love it!

  • Andrew

    I switched when it was first announced. I’m a little annoyed that GPMAA charges me sales tax on the subscription each month. Spotify was always an even $10. Sure it’s only change, but it’s still somewhat annoying.

  • Dave

    I have it too and I love it. I had Spotify before and it was great, but having a Android device, of course I’m going to run and try out Google’s 1st all access music subscription service. It’s $2 cheaper than Spotify, and pretty much does the same thing. Another reason I switched and stayed is Google Music primarily handled all my purchased music, that’s where I would upload my music too and play (since they give you storage for up to 20,000 songs).

  • John Zwiers

    I joined a month ago and joined Spotify at the same time. I kept Google Music. I found navigating on Spotify was a bit tough.

    I’m digging the radio feature and the public playlists.

  • Oscar Alvarado

    As another user stated, the sales tax is annoying and may cause some to remain with or choose Spotify over All Access since the advertised price is actually $8.65/month and will be $10.81 after June 30th.

  • Castiel

    can anyone confirm what the bit rate is and if it’s better then zune ? cause if it is ill just switch over.

  • donger

    Have to at least try it out.
